A client of mine asked me to do some basic data analysis and gave me a rather unorganized, large Excel file. I had to clean up the data which took much more time than actually answering his questions from the data.

This got me thinking - there must be other people who have the same problem, correct? So my question to business owners is:

What do you use Excel for?

What kind of data analysis (even super basic) do you do, if any? Is it automated? Do you use any tools other than Excel?
