Why not to use for statistical analysis Excel only?
Excel is cool, I use it everyday. But in case you consider to use it as main (or only) instrument for statistical analysis, working with survey data, etc., I suggest you to read some caveats on using Excel for doing statistics. Here are just some. Just in case, I saved them locally, but you could google them and find more for sure:
