    Many do not give much weightage to EXCEL as a database. Well if properly maintained EXCEL has the power to function like a Desktop Database. Excel has forms support to enter data, it has powerful VBA Macro support to extend the power of automated report generation.

    Excel is an excellent database; however, I use OpenOffice's Calc instead, because it is FREE. :)

    I tried to use Openoffice, because it is free. In fact not only free it is a very good software. But I was not sure of the macro power, so I am still with MS-Office. I would request you if possible then please check the macro power of Openoffice.

    Macros do not work with OpenOffice.

    I personally don't like Excel. I never liked it ever since I have worked with it in the 8th grade. I am not sure why I don't... probably because of the teacher who taught it was so boring.

    I've never really understood the 'pull' of macros, anyway. Even in programs I have that make them available, I don't use them. It seems like more trouble *to* use them, than to just do things as usual.

    I can still remember it all started with Lotus 1-2-3 worksheet on Dos. Openoffice Calc is a very good product, it has changed a lot since it's last release. To be comparable with MS-Office it needs to have some more functinoalities added.
