Inconsistent data : This becomes most apparent when trying to find a particular record or cell, based on the contents. If a space is incorrectly added in the wrong place, the search or filter fails.
One user at a time : In the instance where there are a number of people required to work on a spreadsheet, they can only access it when no-one else is working on it.
Over time, the spreadsheet grew into what we see today, in the form of Microsoft Excel and a number of similar products on the market. The power of the spreadsheet has grown almost exponentially, allowing the user to create customised formulae, charts, pivots and so on. Worksheets can be linked and updated automatically.
When VisiCalc hit the scene back in the eighties (in the last century), the relatively small group of Apple II users went crazy. It was like manna from heaven for the poor accountants, scientists and engineers who were used to filling in enormous analysis sheets with a pencil. Now, they could use VisiCalc to do the same task, AND calculate the result automatically.
