    What's the most irritating thing about Microsoft Excel?

    I find Microsoft Excel very useful, but also very frustrating.

    The most irritating thing for me is trying to change the format of dates. Sometimes Excel autoformats the date in one way, and it seems impossible to change to the format I want it to be.

    Cutting and pasting from and to Word is also very frustrating.

    What sort of things irritate other people about Microsoft Excel?

    Biologists have plenty of reasons to be irritated with Microsoft Excel - Excel often automatically converts gene names to dates or numbers.

    This can cause serious problems as you can imagine.

    Some biologists even bothered to write a paper about the mistakes Excel makes with gene names: 'Mistaken Identifiers: Gene name errors can be introduced inadvertently when using Excel in bioinformatics'.
