Although we still use Excel a lot, we have moved many of the files online to Google Docs for the access and language (our Vietnamese staff can change the GDocs UI to Vietnamese) issues, especially when our crews are away from the office.

Some of our technical use of xls are:
Traverse and levelling calculations,
data integrity checking for large topo surveys,

Non technical uses:
Cost estimates and quotes,
Weekly planning,
Time-sheets, daily work reports and HSE forms,
Scheduling and tracking,
Equipment ordering/tracking, and
Invoice and payment tracking.

and many more.

Excel is extremely usefull in my surveying job as it is an industry standard office software. Everybody knows how to use Excel so learning curve is not an issue. I develop my own Excel based survey utilities. One of them is map projection utility where user is only required to enter bearings and distances and the rest is automatic including plotting in AutoCAD, Land Desktop, or Civil 3D.
