Microsoft Excel makes me angry.
Current Mood: crankycranky

I like the fact that you can't open two excel files of the same name or it freaks out... nice programming guys.

...don't all programs do that though?

Nah... most word processing programs don't, at least. I tend to accidentally make six billion copies of my stories, all with the same name in different folders, and often have to open them all at the same time to figure out which one is the latest.

Some of them open them and display them with different names (like "story(1)", "story(2)") but save them with the same name.

On the other end of the scale, I remember ClarisWorks used to open a document as another if they had merely similar titles (I think if the first four letters were the same) and were in the same folder. Out of the same folder, though, they were fine.

Too much rambling! *runs off*

Well that's major fail on the part of Excel, isn't it now? :)

I have to use it at work but I only pretend to know how, really I don't know at all. :D
But that's okay, no-one else there knows how to use a computer, so they all think I'm an expert!

What's it doing to you? D:

Just generally being itself. I can't work out what I've done wrong so I can't give the thing what it wants.
Emzilynemzilyn on March 31st, 2009 12:32 am (UTC)
It wants more than 3,000 data entry points so it can complain that it can't do that many, then do it anyway. Or more than 5,000, so it can _not_ complain, and then crash five minutes later.

Generally, if it goes, 'bleah' at me, I give it brackets. Lots and lots of brackets. That usually works. (Or an equals sign. I always forget them. >_>)

Hm, brackets might help, actually. Though I will always be firmly convinced that it's a silly, pushy little thing.

Oh, it is. And buggy. Or maybe some versions are case sensitive and others aren't. I don't know.
