  • Fifteen years of research studies have concluded unanimously that spreadsheet errors are both common and non-trivial. Now w e must seek ways to reduce spreadsheet errors. Several approaches have been suggested, some of which are promising and others, while appealing because they are easy to do, are not likely to be effective. To date, only one technique, cell-by-cell code inspection, has been demonstrated to be effective. We need to conduct further r esearch to determine the degree to which… CONTINUE READING
