I probably would not call them advantages, but circumstances:
- if you cannot choose your input format, and thus would have to
perform that export to text (csv?) manually, use parseexcel.
- parseexcel can give you information on the data contained in a cell
(Cell#type returns :date, :numeric or :text) - if you need that
information, use parseexcel.
