So many of these! There is no telling where the next data source might be, it could be locked in:
- Excel workbooks attached to daily report emails

When that’s not the case, it’s time to parse, convert, validate, and whatever else we might need to do, to get the job done for our clients. It’s really impressive when previously unseen or inaccessible data is suddenly brought to light for them, and we enjoy making that happen!
