to parse arbitrary input formats with arbitrary syntax errors


Are you supposing that Excel would prevent that? I certainly wouldn't presume that.

Columnar data, to me, is one of the easiest formats to parse and validate. I would actually prefer text files since then I do not need to code an Excel API. When I do one shots with Excel I always just manually export it to a tab delimited file and then parse that. And validate it.

If the data is being manually entered then the volume would not be of concern so I would just load the entire data set into memory and parse it and validated it as I went. I would output errors for either parsing (like missing columns) or validation (a number that isn't a number) and would probably read the entire set putting out errors.

If there were any errors then do no more processing. One might continue though depending on the goal.
