Transfer unformatted data into Excel

I like the ability to dump unformatted data into Excel. For me, this was especially useful with SAP reports that couldn't be exported to Excel cleanly. Also, I like having different models that automatically format reports depending on what I need to analyze.

Likes Least

Some of the functionality isn't intuitive, like editing models.


Get training to steepen the learning curve. Unlike more intuitive products, training is beneficial.
