Giving more power to Excel

I never thought I’d start a blog by discussing Excel – a platform I regard as quite unsuitable for market research. However thanks to various developers who have the skill to help Excel move out of descriptive accountancy mode (filters, look-ups, totals, bars and pies etc) there are some plug-ins worth checking out.

PowerPivot is one of these, and it works on Excel 2010 or newer. Microsoft give you a free download and it makes charting quicker and easier.
