Re: Provides a useful tool

My experience of spreadsheet for science in academia is that the format is selected as it allows some protection of functions so as limit expertise theft and/or where the academic in question cannot understand/recreate the calculations themselves.

Yet another example of dumbing down due to IT again allowing the inept to present themselves as otherwise.
