    Looking for a post by Richard or Glenn (I think) about building a spreadsheet

    A couple of days ago I read a post by Richard or Glenn (I think) explaining very well how a spreadsheet should be built so that the data can be analyzed easily, instead of creating the end result and having trouble exploiting data later.
    If anyone could post a link to that thread I would really appreciate.
    Thanks in adavance

    Thanks Logit, I'm afraid it's another one.
    Content is something like " People create the end result first, then have problems doing something else with the data. Create a sheet with one column per topic ( date, member, etc..) and start from there to create needed results".
    The post ended with a sentence about Pivot Tables.

    Basically:

    1 record per row
    1 property of each record per column

    If it was me... it might have been this one:

    I did rather "lose the bap"* a bit over the data structure and used one of my favourite (if not particularly kind) phrases**...

    * Belfast slang for lose my temper
    ** Dog's breakfast, aka total mess....

    Thanks Glenn, but it was another one. I'll keep looking because I found it was explained well
