Re: Increased productivity

"If you have multiple people using Excel to control the stock of whatnot in a hospital then I can guarantee you, 100%, they will have no fuckign idea what the stock level is."
Private hospital chain my brother-in-law used to work for obviously have "no fuckign idea" how to run a multinational business then. How do they remain in business?

Public hospital my sister used to work at the woman who usually did the stock estimates each month was on leave so my sister was asked to do the report. When the usual nurse responsible for it returned from leave she was livid. How dare my sister report actual stocks and usage? She always altered the numbers to reflect what she thought was needed. So it goes...

"Excel does not support transactions from multiple sources."
But individual sheets from disparate areas can be analysed together when included in the same workbook.
