It costs 10 yen to purchase Excel for 148,000 people.It will be an old version after a few years and you will have to buy a new version for everyone.
With Google Sheets, you can use almost the same functions as Excel.In addition to spreadsheet functions, you can also calculate statistical information with filters, conditional formatting, and pivot tables, and you can also draw graphs. Even with advanced usage such as "I'm automating with VBA macros", you can do the same with the "Apps script" that replaces it.
The appeal of Google Sheets isNo need to buy Microsoft Excel..That's right.
Most of the things that Excel can't do with Google Sheets are around the decoration of cells and graphs, so the essential part of spreadsheet software is Google Sheets.
Also, because it works in the browserThere is no need to install it for each PC, and since it is always the latest version, there is no need to update the software..
Of course, you can also convert Google Sheets to an Excel file (.xlsx) (and vice versa), so if the recipient wants Excel, you can do that.
[The second best advantage of Google Spreadsheets] Collaborative work finishes quickly
It is a common story for multiple people to create materials at the same time.
Due to the structure of the file system, it is basically impossible for multiple people to edit one file on the hard disk.Even if you put the file on a shared server, while someone is editing the file, others have to wait for it to finish.
Google Sheets has overturned that common sense.Multiple people can edit the file at the same time.
What this means is that you can do the shared work of "Mr. Tanaka corrects column A and Mr. Suzuki corrects column B" in the same sheet of one file at the same time.
Being able to edit at the same time means that the work will be completed sooner..
