Default Blog Post: To Err is Human; To Detect and Prevent, Divine - By Mary Pat Campbell

We have posted a new blog by Mary Pat Campbell, To Err is Human; To Detect and Prevent, Divine

"Ultimately, one should expect errors, and actively seek them out as we develop our spreadsheets. A great deal of the source of errors in spreadsheets come from the very thing that make them so attractive for use: flexibility and apparent ease-of-use. Being able to make all sorts of changes on the fly, easily duplicating “code” (i.e. formula blocks via copying & pasting elsewhere), and getting immediate results sometimes prevents us from developing the discipline to be error-checking along the way. "
