Hi Corina,

welcome to the forum!

Also I started with MiKTeX and WinEdt, many years ago.
Today I use TeX Live with TeXworks as editor.

LaTeX can produce much better tables than excel does.
And it can generate much better data plots or graphics in general.

Plot samples: PGFplots.net
Graphics samples: TikZ examples
Further samples: LaTeX Cookbook
