Yes, that is part of the motivation.

Well, my goal is ultimately to just get my job done as efficiently as
possible. The less time I spend crunching numbers and placing ad's is more
time I have to do the creative. (I wear lots of hats here) So if I knew
Excel well enough to achieve the same goal as mentioned, I probably would
use the most expedient means to reach my end goal. My current Excel
spreadsheet is very basic, and not automated. I also still need to be able
to create the actual ad "buy", that would access my Excel data and format it
in a way that I can send to each station.

Thanks for the offer, but I probably should try and stretch my brain a
little before I cry "uncle".
