Excel Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet developed by Microsoft for Windows, macOS, Android and iOS. It features calculation, graphing tools, pivot tables, and a macro programming language called Visual Basic for Applications. It has been a very widely applied spreadsheet for these platforms, especially since version 5 in 1993, and it has replaced Lotus 1-2-3 as the industry standard for spreadsheets. Excel forms part of the Microsoft Office suite of software.
According to the Effective Experiment website Excel sucks for managing, they say Excel is a tool that can be something for every possible use case but in doing so. It’s so generic that it can never address the challenges and nuances of any particular use case well. It’s extremely cumbersome for an experimentation team to be able to manage multiple tabs within the spreadsheet, keep everything synced up and update everything on a regular basis.
The website Blackcurve agrees on the previous statement and released an article called "11 disadvantages of using excel". For example, when a data file is too large, it can make the Excel program run very slowly, especially if all the data is in one file. Trying to break the data down into smaller files can lead to some of it being lost or misplaced. Excel is not user-friendly and the application rounds off very large numbers using imprecise calculations, which compromises accuracy. Also, Excel is very susceptible to human errors "On average, a spreadsheet will contain 1 error for every 20 cells that have data"
