I debated putting the Excel spreadsheet in the article. Ultimately, I decided not to since, once the raw data is in a table, you can present in pretty much any format you choose. I'm not very good with Excel either, but give me a few days, and after the holiday, I can post a "How I did it with Excel" follow up. I've also been working with a SQL 2005 equivalent. The internals are pretty much the same, but the presentation has much more potential with SSRS and SSAS...Perhaps another followup article?
This was my first stab at technical writing. I've already learned a great deal from your responses, thank you! I'll definitely try to be more detailed in the future.
