Topic - Excel vs program language

Minneconjou Sioux - on 02 Apr 2013

Ok. So my IT skill are very limited and I might not use the correct terminology here but I'd like to ask the opinion of those who do know this stuff.

I use a fianacial analysis program which is written in Excel. This is how it was developed and it is very good.

As I understand things, it should probably have been written in a different computer language in order to make it less bulky and afford it other properties which confer some advantage.

It is now too late to re-write things and there is some pressure to scrap the existing program and start again.

My problem is that I really like what I have and it works. Does anyone out there in the know have an opinion on whether excel is such a bad system that we should start again or whther they feel excel is perfectly suitable and fit for purpose?
