Default "How do you know your spreadsheet is right?"

"How do you know your spreadsheet is right?" (PDF) is an excellent article from Philip Bewig, from July 2005.

It mainly deals with Excel and some of its features that can help make your spreadsheets more robust. He goes through various practices that may reduce your error rate in developing complicated spreadsheets (also to prevent some deliberate errors, aka fraud, from being undetectable). I've used some of these techniques myself, but some I had never heard or thought of. Most useful of all is his extensive footnotes that provide jumping off points into particular issues. Lots and lots of links.
