Is your Excel spreadsheet a "business-critical" system?

The Check List

Does your Excel spreadsheet match any of these descriptions:

  • Uses a lot of formulas, especially: IF, INDEX, SUMIF, VLOOKUP, IFERROR
  • Has more than 5 worksheets
  • Has 3 or more pivot tables
  • Uses VB macros or scripts
  • Takes several minutes to load
  • Takes several minutes to save
  • Is larger than 5 MB
  • Is used in weekly or monthly managers meetings
  • Is used (directly or indirectly) to make important financial or strategic decisions
  • Has been in continuous development for over a year
  • Has been maintained by several different people over its life span
  • Is currently only maintained by one person
    • Senior managers become anxious when they are on holidays
    • Or the person is "encouraged" to update the spreadsheet while they are away (does that really count as holidays?)

If you answered "yes" to at least 2 points above, you have a business-critical system.
