Oh, I completely agree its valid content, and of course I'm not implying that
wiki's will replace excel. My point was specifically related to the problem of
getting stubborn people to start using the wiki.

Well, if they won't search for the answer via
google, they aren't going to search for it in the wiki.
Well, it can be quite
challenging to find answers for specific Excel issues via Google.
Plus our wiki's database would be a lot smaller than Google's, and its content
custom-tailored for frequently recurring issues, so there wouldn't be as many
The key is not putting up a page on how to modify a
doc. The key is putting the doc itself in the wiki. I know this doesn't translate
really to spreadsheets, but you get what I'm saying.
Sure, but the workspace is
polygamous; there's will always be many different applications, instead of one app to
rule them all. And wikis certainly won't replace Excel any time soon.
So if the doc itself is help for another app, that's valid wiki content... :)
