Final Friday Fix

15 July 2016

ADVANCED NOTICE!! Regular readers of our newsletters may know that we have an end of year Christmas Quiz (well, when else would you have it??) in conjunction with the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA). These quizzes tend to be popular for two reasons:

  1. Many of our readers like to challenge themselves in Excel and see if they can figure out how to get Excel to perform certain tasks / calculations. Some of these puzzles have been a little devious and I know this appeals to analysts of all ages, shapes and sizes
  2. There’s cash prizes!!

We’ll provide one suggested solution on Mondays which you can all argue over as to why it’s a really rubbish solution – but you are free to send in your answers (if it’s better, we’ll use that and pretend it was ours in the first place).

We’re open to suggestions as well. If you have an Excel brainteaser, feel free to share it at You don’t even have to know the answer!!

Spread the word and watch this space. Remember, if you find yourself addicted to solving these puzzles each final Friday, it means you don’t have enough work to do!
