Excel your Reporting
Updated: Dec 22, 2020
If you play in a role that involves data analysis and crunching, then perhaps, Microsoft Excel appears in your top 3 go-to spreadsheets for working with data. From my experience as a Microsoft Dynamics NAV / Business Central consultant, an example of a role that loves playing with data is the accountant role, and this love for data is powered by the Excel tool that they all fancy using. I could exclaim at this point that "accountants love Excel so much" and they would agree with me anywhere in the world.
Spreadsheets equip accountants with the power to tell a story from the data analyses. Stories provide an illustration of a fact or just an opinion. Stories also arouse curiosity, picture a child listening to tales, by the moonlight, being told by a granny. You have the power to tell the most insightful stories when you have the right tools.
You can harness the combined power of Microsoft Excel and Jet Report to tell even better stories. Here is what I mean, budget figures cease to be just 'numbers', but instead could become insights to improving the livelihood of employees, reducing carbon emissions thereby saving the planet, etc.
