It is proposed that software and information represented by the software, be separated but represented in the same open standard searchable way. Software and the information it manipulates are just information that has different uses, there is no reason why software must be represented differently from other information. So XML can be used both as the information input and output by the application, and for the definition of the model itself. The model can read or write information it represents, and the information can read from or write to the model. This recursion makes ‘meta-programming‘ possible.
A popular category of ready-made spreadsheets mentioned earlier, is ‘Spreadsheets for Actors‘. ‘Spreadsheets for Actors‘ includes sets of programmed spreadsheets that are especially designed for professionals in the entertainment industry, from Actors to Producers. The spreadsheets under ‘Spreadsheets for Actors‘ range from facilitating the managing of budgets to keeping track of income emerging from many sources.
Processing the financial documents related to a business enterprise basically means they need to be listed. For taxation and financial control purposes the invoices also need to be added up and analyzed. The most basic method would be to simply make a list of the sales income and a second list of the purchase expenses. Using a manual method of listing the information falls short of the analysis required and is more time consuming that using a little technology to both ensure the summation is accurate and the analysis simplified. Listing the sales and expenses of a small business on spreadsheets is no more difficult then a manual paper system and has tremendous advantages in automating and ensuring accuracy.
By their nature, large spreadsheets are difficult for a third party to comprehend as their inherent flexibility for editing allows users to generate a complex web of cell references which are arduous to audit. Panko (2000), Paine, (2003), and Scanlan et al (2006) examine this problem. Worse still, there is a tendency for the spreadsheet author to misguidedly compound the problem by expending a considerable amount of effort into hiding the detail behind an elaborate and visually attractive ‘front end‘. Should the author of such an application leave the organization, it is commonly abandoned as colleagues are reluctant to master its complexity and often refuse to take ownership of it, as they are busy with their main work. Paine states that spreadsheets have almost no features for building applications out of parts that can be developed and tested independently.
Spreadsheets are computer applications that provide you with a virtual way of creating accounting worksheets. They are often used for calculating numbers and organizing data. You can also use them for charting and displaying the graphical interpretation of data. There are many electronic spreadsheets today so you can use them to start the comparison process.
