Excel Add-ins

Many sports scientist use spreadsheets to analyse data, prepare training programmes and/or deal with complex numbers or formulas. Microsoft excel is probably the most used spreadsheet in the sports science community.

Before suggesting some useful add-ins, I would like to remind readers that a free product with all the capabilities of Microsoft office can be downloaded for free at:

www.openoffice.org

The quality of this software is immense and it is fully compatible with Microsoft products. This is an open source project which allows anyone to have a good quality software without paying a penny.

The following screen shot is just an example of the amazing capabilities of the spreadsheet:

 

So, if you are in need to such a software have a look at it, it is free.

I recently installed a very useful add-in for excel provided by ASAP utilities. It really speeds up all the work I do on spreadsheets and it is now an invaluable tool for me.
