XLSUPERTOOL

The XLSUPERTOOL was developed following 20+ years of Microsoft Excel usage. The tool contains many useful functions and concepts not standard with Excel. The tool is designed for Stand-alone or Add-in use.
Version 20171021=Download zip file

CONCEPT RATIONALE

To allow for a portable stand-alone or a simple self-installing add-in that gives the user tools such as Excel bookmarks, multiple tab closer, tab divider and sorter and over 50 other tools in one place.

DEVELOPMENT

I have been using Excel since the late 1990s. The development of XLSUPERTOOL comes from years in industries such as Quality Control, Logistics (Freight Forwarding), and Publishing. The tools contained within are some of the most commonly needed tools I would have to constantly re-create. Now, here they are in one easy to access tool.

VERSIONS

All OFFICIAL VERSIONS (that you would download from this site) are said to be free from virus/spyware/adware.
All of the code is open and viewable. The various official versions will all be listed here.
Subsequent versions will have the ability to "import saved configurations" from previous versions.

DISCLAIMER

While I have made an effort to design the tool in a way that should operate in an expected manner, use of the tools comes without warranty and is "as is". By downloading and using this tool, the user holds Roderick Edwards and rodericke.com free from any liability.

SETUP

  1. Download and open the zipfile (if only contains and Excel workbook in the .xlsb format).
  2. Enable Content/Macros/Editing (if prompted).
  3. STAND-ALONE use, simple click the LAUNCH button and follow on screen instructions.
  4. -------------

  5. ADD-IN use, select from Add-in #1 or #2 in the dropdown box in D13.
  6. Close all other workbooks you may have open.
  7. Add-in #1 places simply single tab ribbon/menu within Excel's own menu system (By Home/Insert/Page Layout...)
  8. Add-in #2 places full featured tab ribbon/menu allowing direct access to specific tools as needed.
  9. Once you decide which Add-in type you want, click LAUNCH. Will attempt to create .xlam file in your Add-in folder and enable.
  10. You should now see XLSuperTool menu/ribbon tab with every instance of Excel you open.

ADVANCED

The Stand-alone and Add-in# versions allow user access to the built-in "Designer" tab which allows the user to add their own macros/subroutines to the tool's user-interface.
