It seems spreadsheets are the route of all evil if you believe everything you read today. Much like a difficult toddler they make mistakes, often get unruly and difficult to handle and don't share easily.
Nevertheless we in finance love them. Like offspring we've nurtured the spreadsheet as one of our own. There are times we'd happily scream at them but, like our offspring they have our own stamp running through them. They are tricky to adopt from others, as there are lots of hidden codes to understand and learn so they behave well, and you can build a relationship with them.
So how can we cling to spreadsheets and make them work when all around us are heralding that it's time to let go and move on?
