Escaping Excel Dependency

Escaping Excel Dependency

Microsoft Excel is a powerful tool within the Microsoft 365 suite. With the ease of starting workbooks, it’s easy to gravitate to using Excel due to the initial simplicity and there is no one in the organization that understands or knows how to use Microsoft Access.

How do you know if you are overly dependent on Excel?

  • Do you have Excel files linked to a variety of other workbooks?
  • Are there calculations linked across these workbooks?
  • Are some workbooks viewable to only a select few in the company?
  • For overall reporting, is it a difficult undertaking to create any kind of accurate reporting?

If your organization is running on these or other types of Excel dependency, then you may be missing the true power of a relational database using Microsoft Access.
