In the morning news feed I noticed something about Excel as a Turing complete programming language. Say what? 
 
From my days of Visicalc to Quattro Pro, and even my TI-99 to my HP 41CX, never would I have imagined Excel being Turing complete; yet then again, I am a VBA junkie from the 1990s and wrote plenty of MS Access driven solutions with an MDE/MDB payload solution aka thin client/server LAN solution.
 
So this Excel article belows explains the Turing approach to Excel on a whole new level. I enjoyed it, yet want to skip ahead to just VBA rather than a Lambda function that is still worksheet trapped.
 
Till then, use VBA, and the Power BI folks can still use Tableau and more to express their data.
