right..works great if you don't mind that reading in
data now takes about 3-4 times as long as it did when
data was simply double keyed entered raw data files.
Not to mention the innumerable ways in which project
managers, lab techs, and PIs can totally hose a
"dataset" that's in excel and have NO idea of what
I suspect the quantity of data has increased
exponentially and the quality decreased by an equal
amount via excel.
