Beta Testers Applaud Diff Interactive for Fast Comparison of Spreadsheets; Only Solution to Examine Named Ranges and Make Changes to Live Workbooks
Sunnyvale, Calif. (Business Wire) – June 28, 2011 – Incisive, a leading developer of enterprise-class spreadsheet analysis and management solutions, today announced that its Diff Interactive solution, the industry’s first real-time spreadsheet comparison software application, is now available for purchase. Announced in April 2011, Diff Interactive delivers a new and better way of comparing spreadsheets to give users visibility into spreadsheet risk. Diff Interactive works in real-time to quickly determine if/what spreadsheet changes were made by others and confirms that users are working with the latest spreadsheet version. It’s also the only comparison solution to examine named ranges.
“Our test results indicate that Diff Interactive will be a contender in this market,” said Diane Robinette, vice president of marketing for Incisive. “Our beta testers loved that Diff Interactive allow them to make changes directly to the live workbook, instead of using a side by side comparison, and its named range comparison functionality is unequaled. Diff Interactive saves users significant amounts of time to manage spreadsheet changes and provides confidence that the information is correct.”
Diff Interactive:

  • Examine Formulas, cell values and sheets;
  • Compares named ranges;
  • Offers spreadsheet snapshots to compare changes to support “what if?” analyses’; and
  • Provides statistics reports that highlight differences at both the workbook and worksheet levels.

As with other Incisive products, Diff Interactive and Microsoft Office Excel appear as one to the user and the integrity of the spreadsheet application is always maintained. By leveraging the unique patented overlay technology, color is used to highlight differences and mouse-over provides details. Diff Interactive is an installable product and may be used with Microsoft Office Excel 2003, 2007 and 2010. For more information or to purchase Diff Interactive, please visit Xcellerator.
