      <Abstract>Spread sheet risks are a reality in enterprises. They are an unavoidable&#13;
component of any enterprise data processing system. Use of spread sheets&#13;
can never be fully eliminated from any enterprise data processing&#13;
environment. The only way to counter the problem is to minimize their ill effects&#13;
with proper IT policies and data processing strategies.&#13;
In this article, to begin with a quick analysis of the data base types and the changing&#13;
needs of data processing requirements of any Enterprise, small or big in size, is given.&#13;
An attempt has been made to trace the origin of the very concept of __ampersandsign#39;Spread Sheet&#13;
Risk__ampersandsign#39; from historic perspective.&#13;
A formal theory is proposed to establish that __ampersandsign#39;Spread Sheet Risk__ampersandsign#39; is an unavoidable&#13;
evil , specially in financial data processing.&#13;
Next an attempt has been made to theoretically examine the trend of __ampersandsign#39;Spread sheet&#13;
risk__ampersandsign#39; over the past few years, and estimate the growth rates.&#13;
Strategies for monitoring the risk and effectively managing the same have been&#13;
suggested , using proofs which are based on the Software Engineering Principles,&#13;
established data growth laws, and the dynamics of tiny data to big-data&#13;
It can be stated that this article conclusively proves that - Spread Sheet Risk is now&#13;
an established concept , which is a minimizable evil, but which can never be&#13;
eliminated. Hence it is necessary for the Enterprises to train their managers&#13;
adequately to be able to select and adopt appropriate control measures.</Abstract>
