Abstract: Previous spreadsheet inspection experiments have had human subjects look forseeded errors in spreadsheets. In this study, subjects attempted to find errorsin human-developed spreadsheets to avoid the potential artifacts created byerror seeding. Human subject success rates were compared to the successfulrates for error-flagging by spreadsheet static analysis tools SSATs appliedto the same spreadsheets. The human error detection results were comparable tothose of studies using error seeding. However, Excel Error Check andSpreadsheet Professional were almost useless for correctly flagging naturalhuman errors in this study.
