June 2004
Formula Software Releases Excel Compare 2.0

Excel file and spreadsheet comparison tool that frees you from finding differences manually.

Excel documents are ubiquitous in today's office environment. They are used by accountants and doctors, marketing professionals and online entrepreneurs, students and professors. Excel documents are used as price lists and scientific data sheets. Naturally, these documents are often updated and altered. Finding the differences between different Excel files or spreadsheets is painstaking and may take hours, if done manually.

Luckily, there is Excel Compare, an automatic comparison utility that instantly displays the differences between different Excel files or spreadsheets and generates an easy to comprehend report. The program supports all Excel versions, is capable of processing structured databases, features a special algorithm for unique identifiers, highlights individual cells that contain different data, allows setting comparison range and processes spreadsheets with the same name in two different workbooks.

The report that is generated is a simple Excel spreadsheet that contains deleted, added and changed data.

In fact, it is the only software that generates the differences report in Excel format, meaning you can manipulate data, print or edit it later. The format of the original data is preserved too. This new version of the program is capable of generating a report at the speed of 10000 data entries in 1 second for a 1.7 GHz PC thanks to Direct Write technology.

Here are typical testimonials from Excel Compare users:

... It does what I need it to do and has it save me a lot of time. I like the feature of the report being in the same format as the input files, and in Excel format. We have developed a specification for an expert system in Excel. I track changes to the specification with Excel Compare and distribute the change reports to developers.

Bob Armstrong, Becton Dickinson

... I wanted to register Excel Compare because of a) its high speed, b) the novel approach of displaying the Master and Amended rows on one page, highlighting changes, c) full functionality in trial version to allow testing on databases with thousands of rows and hundreds of columns, d) high likelihood of that this tool would become an important basic tool in my toolbox, e) company acceptance to consider my suggestions for improving the program, and offer of free registration if I would provide comments which added value, f) operational problems in other similar programs.

Jim Steinhauer, Alberta Government

February 2003
Formulasoft releases Excel Compare 1.0

Formulasoft announces the release of Excel Compare - a handy tool for automatic comparison of Excel documents.

Microsoft's Excel is one of the most popular office software in the world right now and has long become the industry standard. With so many great features, MS Excel is ideal for building tables, data sheets and reports. However, when it comes to comparing different reports to see what data (if any) has changed, most people have to do it manually, which is frequently almost impossible due to the large volume of data.

Formulasoft's Excel Compare allows you to automatically analyze any number of Excel documents or their components (parts). Advanced comparison algorithm promptly provides correct results when comparing files, directories, worksheets or selected data parts. The cells that contain different results (i.e. the data has changed) are automatically highlighted and the results of a comparison report are presented as a new Excel sheet.

Importantly, this "Differences Report" can keep the format of the compared data. Advanced Excel users will be glad to know that Excel Compare supports automatic addition of user-defined macros, project settings, and command line options.

The software was very well received even during the early stages of beta testing. Peter Cozzi from Ciphergen Biosystems in Fremont wrote:

"As a senior technician I have to do a number of engineering change orders which involve bills of material done in Excel. With your software I generate a difference report to check my own editing and present at the initial review. It saves time and catches mistakes."

Tamouh Hakmi from Hicommunications underlined "instant comparison, complete control and accurate results" as the most valuable properties of this software.

Excel Compare runs under Windows 95/98/Me/NT4/2000/XP, costs $39.95(US), and may be purchased securely online at http://www.formulasoft.com/ . You can download a free, fully-functional trial version from the same Internet address. Vendors, resellers and volume buyers should inquire about special discounts.
