  1. While testing AskExcel, I observed that there are common issues in its functioning if your Excel file has more than a few hundred records. In such cases, you frequently get a ‘Task execution failed’ error message.
  2. Also, when I tried to download some extracted (filtered data) as a result of a specific query, it was observed that the complete data was downloaded with all the records without any filtering whatsoever. This happens despite the fact that the results on the screen were correct.

Closing Comments:

AskExcel is an okay AI Assistant that allows you to upload data in the form of an Excel file and ask questions to analyze and interpret the data, build charts and more.
