What makes Visio better than Excel?

What is the advantage of making a flow chart in Visio instead of Excel? I haven't played with Visio much yet, but I'm not seeing anything that's significantly better or easier.

iPhone app to open and edit Excel documents

iPhoneAppFilter: I have an Excel document on my home computer that I would like to be able to open and edit on my iPhone while I'm out and about, on an ongoing basis. The catch: app needs to be able to handle "index" and "match" functions. Without this functionality, the app would be useless to me. List of previous disappointments: DropBox (can't edit), QuickOffice (interfaces with DropBox but can't do index/match functions), Calc Lite (can't open document). I have zero programming skills and not that much more cash. Is my dream app (or combination of apps) out there?

Spreadsheets, Databases - Help Me. Please.

Well, I created a spreadsheet in Google docs. A simple, no frills document where there are various columns - one s for email addresses. Those addresses I want to go into my Address book in either Gmail or Thunderbird. Downloaded the spreadsheet into Excel - in CSV format - tried to save it to text - it's obviously not working. Someone online directed me to the Google Scripts and to API. This is so not my forte' and it's for a non-profit and am getting lost in a sea of geekage. Is there a simple way to just export the column of email addresses, convert them into a database separated by columns, fit for my email program? Thanks in advance.

YTD total based on sum of last number in another row that has a value?

YTD total based on sum of last number in another row that has a value? I need to sum up the values in one row based on the matching row below it. For example, if I have a target of $1000 a month, and I only have actual revenue numbers through June, I would like to calculate the year to date for the target from Jan to June. Once July numbers are put in, I'd want the YTD for the target to update to Jan to Jul. I have tried a couple of variations on COUNT, INDEX and OFFSET. Example is here: http://malcommc.com/ytd.xls I am using Excel 2003

Correlating dates, times, stock movements

I have lists, in Excel spreadsheets, that contain perhaps 500 rows of data in three columns: Date, Time and Stock Ticker Symbol. I need a method to correlate those three things with unusual stock activity. In other words, if column 1 is March 10, 2010, and column 2 is 10 a.m., and column three is INTC, I need to know if something unusual happened - high volume or big price movement - for INTC around 10 a.m. March 10. Anyone know a program that'll do this?

A general book would be handy, but the main topic I'm really struggling with is 'visual basic', so it would need to include detailed information on how to use that and the coding system of Excel. Can anyone reccomend a good book to get that would include information relative to that?

need help organizing spreadsheet

I need to organize a spreadsheet of log files into specific columns. The spreadsheet is a converted text column, each log file parses things differently, so column 'a' on one row can be userid, while column 'd' on row is the userid. I want to organize this spreadsheet, so that column a is userid for all logs. is there a specific excel formula or macro i should use, i was thinking: if cell contains userid, move to column 'x'. just not sure how to do this. - Tim
