My request was pretty easy, I thought, when I asked the person to give me a list of student names and their email addresses so I could send out invitations.

I got a spreadsheet:


Five empty rows. Eight rows with an additional third column containing a first name which is already in column A. Two additional rows with some blurb and a given name, but as there’s no email address associated, I can’t use the entry.

Mind-boggling. Even more so when you know what this IT person’s title is.
