EXCEL is a marvellous tool but shouldn't be looked at in total isolation.

Integrating it into say MySQL (easy) or Postgre(more difficult) database systems DRAMATICALLY increases the power of EXCEL dramatically.

Interesting, indeed. But this sentence near the very end is the most important one: "If you were planning to manage your finances, do your taxes, or create brochures, your tool of choice in most cases should be a dedicated application."

No kidding. I'm not a graphic designer but I've been around enough of them to pick up some stuff, and I know they'd puke if they saw that thing for training pilots.
