Thanks DED for showing massive issues with numbers and why Office is still king.
It is just you---
Daniel updated the charts so either you didn't clear your cache or you're just reading other postings. I checked and all the colors are correct too. The 99% is the typical roundoff error caused when only showing rounded off percentages. This happens all the time. Create the table yourself and you'll see. I have no idea why they didn't work the first time.
As for Office being the king, you're right. It used to be the king of macro viruses and still is the king of having way too many options that are extremely difficult to find and 99.999% of users don't need anyway (no, I'm not going to tell you which ones). As far as Excel being all that great, tell me why people have to write all sorts of insane macros just to get the application to do what they want it to do. Shouldn't the king of all spreadsheet applications already have those features? Or are they using the Excel to do something a database does better? Just like Word being used to create publications.
You are permitted your opinion, just like I am, but I'm glad I retired and don't have to put up with all the "help" Microsoft kept giving me when using Office (that I didn't ask for and had to regularly correct).
