  •  What do I recommend? (0+ / 0-)

    To answer your last question first, it depends.  Technically, I trust Excel to about eight digits, but not much beyond that.  (At least as long as the code isn't running on a first-generation Pentium 4,)

    What I remember at all times is that the biggest vulnerability on my machine is the person providing input: me.    I never load any macros I haven't read and audited, and if they aren't obviously as-correct-as-possible to me, I use a different spreadsheet to export the content as csv and reimport it.

    To answer your second to last question: see above.  I use it, so I obviously consider the risks minimal.
