Enterprise (Version 3.9)

  • New and enhanced tests
    • #SPILL – This test highlights cells where Excel cannot return (multiple) results to the grid because the grid display area is not blank or not large enough to accept the results. It will also highlight cells when Excel does not have enough memory to perform the calculation.
    • #CALC – This test highlights cells when a formula runs into a calculation error with an array or when the calculation engine encounters a formula MS Excel does not support.

Enterprise (Version 3.8)

  • Usability improvements
    • Added the ability to test the whole workbook or the current sheet from the Start Xcellerator button.
    • Categorized Tests for straightforward Single Sheet or Multiple Sheet
  • New and enhanced tests
    • Array Formulas – this test highlights any array formulas.
    • Formulas Referencing Table – this test highlights formulas that reference data tables.
    • Formulas with Absolute References – this test highlights formulas using absolute referencing.
    • Calculated Value Precision – for formula cells that are not formatted as Currency, Percentage, Accounting, or Time, this test will highlight cells where the displayed precision does not match the actual precision due to custom formatting.
    • Enhanced #Error testing – now offered as 7 distinct tests: #Div/0, #Name, #NULL, #NUM, #REF, #VALUE, #N/A.
  • Expanded Custom Reporting capability to comment on any cells or range of cells.

Enterprise (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
    • 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
    • NEW View Sheet References – shows information about cells who formulas point to other sheets.

  • New tests
    • 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.
  • New troubleshooting capabilities with a simple right-click of a mouse:
    • Cascading Referrers – chains of cells referencing each other directly/indirectly.
    • Descendants – cell references that impact the current cell.
