Version 3.7

  • Added the ability to import and export user defined Profiles.
  • Added visibility into workbook information via right click menu.
  • New and enhanced tests (Enterprise version)
    • Enhanced Constant in Formula – now offered as two tests: multiplication and division ideal for highlighting a tax calculation (multiply by percentage) or a monthly rate (divide by 12), and addition and subtraction ideal for uncovering a “fudge factor”.
    • NEW Currency formatted as text – similar to number formatted as text, this test highlights cells that look like they are formatted as currency but are actually formatted as text.
    • NEW Date/Time format – while Excel stores date/time as a 5 digit number, it is not practical when searching for a human readable date. This test will highlight cells formatted as date-time.
    • NEW Inconsistent Precision – this test will highlight cells where the displayed precision does not match the actual precision due to custom formatting (does not apply to Currency, Accounting or Time formats).
    • Enhanced Custom Tests – now include the ability to configure criteria to include date, number and percent.
  • Reporting (Enterprise version)
    • NEW View Sheet References – shows information about cells who formulas point to other sheets.
    • NEW View Old Reports – a directory named after the workbook is created and stores all reports generated.

Version 3.6

  • New tests (Enterprise version)
    • Overlapping Ranges – highlights cells that have formulas with ranges that are overlapping but with at least one different starting or ending point.
    • Referencing Other Regions – highlights the absolute formula addresses that reference other formula regions.
    • Referencing Hidden Cells – highlights formula references that refer to a hidden row/column, font size, color or background, or narrow row height or column width.

    • Cascading Referrers – chains of cells referencing each other directly/indirectly.

  • New tests
    • Out of Bounds conducts a quick scan of a spreadsheet for cells references that are not in the working area.
    • Referrers and Inconsistent Referrers highlight cells being referenced by formulas in another cell. Additionally, Inconsistent Referrers look for cells that have differing formulas pointing to them.
    • Possible Nested Error highlights potential errors that are nested within complex formulas.

    • Informational: Numeric Data. Prevents intentional or accidental misrepresentation of something that appears to be a number when it is actually formatted as text.
