I was thinking the same thing. Excel is OK for faking an RDBMS up to a point, but it has a lot of potentially bad behavior ... behavior that is very handy in some non-relational problems, but is bad behavior from a relational point of view. It could be you would actually be better off in Access. Excel is fundamentally a glorified calculator. A powerful one, for sure, but a calculator. Using it for complex data management is asking for trouble. A lot of people don't understand the basics of RDBMS and so stick to Excel because it is what they know.
