Every few months I download some data from my site and have to slice and dice it in Excel. This schedule is just often enough that I know what sorts of tricks are available to me, but not often enough that I know how to get them to work.
So a few times a year, I spend a day or so Googling Excel functions and formulas and plugging them into various cells until I get what I need. Someday, I’ll either be attentive enough to my data, or smart enough to write myself a note explaining what I’ve done, that this won’t be an issue. But until then, the dance continues.
Anyway, it was during one of my Excel “hunt and peck” sessions that the above cartoon came to me.
