Why Use Excel?
There are great reporting tools on the market. So why use Excel?

In fact, it’s so common that other companies tend to design their spreadsheet programs around Excel formulas and functions. People who have learned Excel can easily and quickly master new spreadsheet programs because they are very similar to Excel.
Because Excel is so common in the workplace, most, if not all, of your managers will have learned at least rudimentary Excel skills. This includes creating spreadsheets and basic charts and graphs.
