Spreadsheets - 表計算



天使: Don't use a spreadsheet! Do it right.
悪魔: But a spreadsheet would be so easy.
天使: In the long run you'll regret it!

天使: Take the time to write real code.
悪魔: Just paste the data! Tinker until it works!
悪魔: Build a labyrinth of REGEXREPLACE() and ARRAYFORMULA()!
悪魔: Feel the power!

天使: Fight the temptation!
悪魔: Ever tried QUERY() in Google Sheets? It lets you treat a block of cells like a database and run SQL queries on them.
 (Google SheetsでQUERY()を試したことあるか?これで、セルのブロックをデータベースのように扱って、SQLクエリを実行できる。)

天使: Don't listen to--
天使: ... wait, really?
悪魔: Yes, and let me tell you about IMPORTHTML() ...
天使: Oooh...

Alt-text: My brother once asked me if there was a function to produce a calendar grid from a list of dates in Google Sheets. I replied with a single-cell formula that took in a list of dates and outputted a calendar. It used SEQUENCE(), REGEXMATCH(), and a double-nested ARRAYFORMULA(), and it locked up the browser for 15 seconds every time it ran. I think he learned a lot about asking me things.
 (僕の兄弟はかつて、Google Sheetsの日付リストからカレンダーグリッドを作成する機能があるかどうか尋ねてきた。僕は日付リストを取り入れ、カレンダーを出力する単一セル式を答えた。SEQUENCE()、REGEXMATCH()、および二重にネストされたARRAYFORMULA()を使用し、実行するたびに15秒間ブラウザがロックした。彼は僕に物を尋ねることについて多くを学んだと思う。)
