Back to Work, In Excel Hell October 30, 2007

Posted by Mitchell in Home.


It’s that time of year again where I get to look at hundreds of Excel spreadsheets and hundreds of thousands of little, fiddly numbers where I get to decide which ones get bolded and which ones do not.  I shitteth thee not they pay me to do this.

I nicked this grapic from the late, great Dave at Garfield Ridge site.

Oh yes! We’re looking for very specific types of numbers in all this. I wrote a program to highlight likely suspects and to go ahead and bold very likely suspects. I still have to run eyeballs over all of it though. All of this is in preparation for a series of detailed analyses that I get to run afterwards. This time is extra special because now we have a lot people interested in our results. Yay! More scrutiny!
