Swiss Army Spreadsheets is a blog designed to show people the power of a tool most people already have, and mostly ignore: the spreadsheet.  Posts will address questions ranging from the very most basic skills to the creation of complicated tools.

I’m Gwen Exner, and everything I post here is something I’ve taught myself by experimenting, looking up help files, and then experimenting some more.  My background is a blend of libraries and computers.  The librarian side of me knows all about budgets and the importance of making the most out of what you’ve got, and the programmer side of me knows that there’s almost no limit to what can be created inside a computer if you’re just careful and determined enough.  My abuse creative use of spreadsheet programs is due to the combination of these two sides, focused by the needs I encounter in my daily life.
