Java or Excel? Lifeguard rotation
ok so i have only taken one semester of java in college so fairly new to java. here is my question for some of you java experts.
my job is a lifeguard/pool attendant at a resort and everyday, me or one of the other lead guards, need to make a rotation for the lifeguards to follow. sometimes we close down one of the stands because we are short staffed and sometimes we have enough for guards to clean or take a break for 15 minutes. it all depends on how many guards we have.
now for the question; would making a program that will fill out the rotation be more functional than trying to make an Excel file that would fill out itself??
and if java is your opinion, would you make an array in java with that basically mimics the excel fill and then print it to a .txt file or is there another way??
and if Excel is your opinion, what complications do you see as being a problem with java over Excel?
sorry if this isnt the right place to post.
