That shows how to manipulate tables in Excel, but it doesn't really end 
up with something that I would consider good enough for printing.  Excel 
is pretty nice at some database operations (selecting subsets by 
checkboxes, etc.) and with some work it can do whatever you want, but I 
don't think it is easy to produce a table that I would use in a paper or 
presentation.  (Nor is it really easy in R, but I think it is easier, 
given that I know R and LaTeX.  No question that it takes time to learn
