Perhap's its just the way my brain functions (or malfunctions), but with a
small, simple data set I like to be able to sit down with paper and pencil
and look at the matrix of the data.  If it won't fit on one piece of paper,
I like to physically cut and paste the excel printouts together to make an
actual spreadsheet.  It's also convenient to have such a print out to give
to an underling to spotcheck some of the values against the source
documents.  Finally, for the compulsively paranoid delusional among us,
it's reasurring to have a printed back up copy in case the computers revolt
and no longer obey our commands.

I don't think so. But I don't understand
how putting it into Excel makes it any easier
to check.
