Excel is a great tool but your points are so true! You would be amazed what excel is used for in some businesses.

Retailers use Excel to plan all their merchandising to stores ($millions).

Warehouse track inventory in Excel!

Wholesales do their forecasting in Excel!

I use it everyday, and yes it has bugs!
