Spreadsheets are basic, general tools for organizing data. Software, like Excel, has many features to aid in organization of data and calculation of values of interest. However, data that appear organized and clear within a spreadsheet may not translate well into statistical software. These issues can create headaches for the statistician on the project and lead to delays in the processing and analysis of the data.
