You have to keep in mind that creating a spreadsheet is much like a creating a software program.  You wouldn't trust a program without running test data through it, and you really have to do the same with a spreadsheet.

Thanks for the study, Brent. Was this an Hypothesis-Driven study or a Data-Driven study? I'm a scientist, not an engineer, but I do use spreadsheet calculations to do quick statistics on very small collections of preliminary data. To analyze experimental results I go a bit deeper and use either MathCAD or Mathematica depending on the preference of my collaborators. For measurements and signal processing I use test-driven software development guidelines to produce code in National Instruments LabVIEW. I use a spreadsheet to document quick calculations that I used to perform with a handheld calculator.

I would hypothesize the use of spreadsheets to analyze mission-critical data would be widespread in business and financial applications. Is it that widespread in science and engineering?
