It's really not that hard once you start doing such things :)
I actually have functionality in my spreadsheets for my bankruptcy
filings that I haven't been able to implement in livecode yet. (In
fairness, even though they're not scripted, I passed the line into
programming on it).
Although it's a bit easier in the openoffice family then excel,
primarily from regexp support, but you have something like
my words are wonderful 14 =mid(a1,b1,1)
my words are wonderful 14 w
and then you sort by column 3.
Or, you add another column with the calculated position, and have a
seocnd table that diplays it.
Or, . . .
But then, I used it to create 90 page court filings :)
