## ReportLite Practice: Generating reports with the same format using different data multiple times

There is a large amount of work for professionals in various industries to make reports, and there are often reports with the same format but frequently changing data. In the face of this situation, Excel needs to remake reports every time the data changes, making the work of report makers very cumbersome. For example, to use data from the following xls file: To make a report on payment collection details: The report to be produced has undergone style adjustments, adding information such as title and header. More importantly, the order of columns is inconsistent with the original order in xls.

## SPL XLL Practice: Excel Interval Association

Sometimes in work, it is necessary to fill in different values based on different interval gears. For example, in the student evaluation system, there are excellent or good based on different score interval; the shipping cost is calculated based on different prices among different weight ranges. In Excel, it is generally necessary to use multiple nested IF or lookup functions to implement, which is cumbersome and prone to errors. Here is a simple and easy-to-use method, using the Excel plugin SPL XLL. SPL XLL has rich data operation functions that can solve many complex Excel problems. In interval association, the

## SPL XLL Practice: Almighty Text Splitting in Excel

Text splitting is a common problem encountered in work. For common splitting with commas, semicolons, spaces, and other delimiters or regular fixed width splitting, Excel’s “text to columns” function can be directly used for splitting. However, more complex text splitting in Excel is often cumbersome or difficult to implement. It is easy to handle with SPL XLL, which has a specialized text splitting function that can split by any delimiter. It can also extract numbers, dates, parse K-V formats, etc. from strings, making it very useful. 1. Split by separator If it is a text separated by a single character

## Set operations of Excel inter row data (intersection, union, difference)

In the workplace, it is common to encounter tasks that require merging and comparing data from two or more spreadsheets, where duplicate data needs to be picked out. This is essentially a conventional set operation, but Excel cannot directly support it and requires a series of functions to implement it, which is cumbersome and not easy to understand. Here is a useful plugin that can directly perform set operations. This plugin is called SPL, which excels in handling various complex Excel operations and is used to assist Excel calculations, doubling the work efficiency in seconds. For example, there are product

## Set operations of data between Excel columns (intersection, union, difference)

Sometimes in work, we may encounter situations where two or more sets of data intersect or union, but Excel itself does not support direct set operations. For set operations, a series of functions need to be used to implement them, which is cumbersome and not easy to understand. Here is a good method for doing set operations. By using an Excel plugin SPL, you can directly perform set operations. 1. Set operations of two columns of data For two columns of data, operations can be directly done with operators (intersection ^, union &, difference \) in SPL, which is simple

## A laymen’s roadmap for data analysis and processing technology

In the era of big data and artificial intelligence, data analysis is a hot topic, and data analysts seem to be a popular profession. Many laymen want to learn, but in the face of the vast and complex technology, they cannot figure out where to start. So, people often ask this question, and of course, more specifically, how can I learn SQL and whether to learn Python? In fact, it is often the same thing behind the scenes. Intentionally putting “processing” here as well, because data analysis does not exist separately, and the data used for analysis often needs to
