Did ChatGPT come up with that? If so, that is impressive. The problem I have with ChatGPT is it sometimes bullshits and you have no idea how much confidence to have in the answer. Also I fear that the SEO people will use it to generate mountains of bland and mediocre content.

Yes, this is a ChatGPT response. I was surprised by the output. I wasn’t sure if it would recognize EDT.

It’s missed a key limitation of Excel (for example); it’s not just ‘large amounts of data’; it’s that it handles file sizes that Excel can’t, with it’s paltry 1m row restriction …

Absolutely! A CSV I get on a monthly basis counts 500.000 rows. And there are 17 versions of it (1 during 17 rolling months). It is such a PAIN to do this with excel only. I have explained this many times internally and still I am left in this gap with a swiss knife (Excel) and that is it.

But that was before I bought a portable version of EDT and put it on a USB stick. Today, EDT treated 900 million rows for me and it continues to grow. Thank you EDT! :smiley:
