"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is why I always find it funny when you go into a temp agency and they test, to make sure you know Excel.  There are so many different ways to do things, the challenge is guessing what one they have marked as correct.
