I'm on a project team that is going to Transform the finance function here. One of the outcomes will be that there will be no more spreadsheet-based reporting. I'm down with that. I'm also having to learn to cope with the spreadsheets I have to use in my new team... they merge cells as if they have no concept of the downstream impact. Oh, and eyeball-slapping colours, that makes it very hard to even read the numbers.

This is all your fault isn't it? You pointed out they were doing it all wrong for years, and so they put you on a "team" with some of the people that had been doing it wrong and a few "experts" and some of the bosses "favorites" and now you have to go to meetings and get stonewalled because no one likes a. smartasses, b. actually working when they could be in a meeting, c. changing things up when they were "working" just fine even though it was all fucking wrong as shit.

No, it's that the spreadsheet was created about a decade ago and modified as needed. We cross fingers every time excel updates or upgrades. I think I'll have to bite the bullet and learn VBA and reprogram it from scratch (without the assbackwards interpolation methods it uses)
