Excel enhancer

Improve your Excel experience with this handy program's numerous tools.

ASAP Utilities promises to simplify and speed up the experience of working with Microsoft's Excel spreadsheet program. By providing dozens of simply applied options, it's certain to gain fans among frequent Excel users.

ASAP Utilities' interface will be familiar to frequent Excel users. The program is embedded into the spreadsheet program along the top row of commands, next to Excel's Help option. You navigate it with expandable menus that look very much like other Excel menus. There's a small Help file, but we recommend simply experimenting with the functions. The 21 options include Text, Columns, Numbers, Formulas, and several more. Clicking a topic showcases several related options in menu style as well. For example, within the Favorites and Shortcuts option, users can pick from 20 specific choices including resizing, coloring, and copying. You apply your choices by inputting specific cell numbers and other data, and ASAP Utilities quickly converts your spreadsheet. We were impressed not only with the breadth of options, but also by how simple each was to utilize. The program's finest feature assigns a hot-key combination to each of the Favorites and Shortcuts. We only wish ASAP Utilities offered such options for every command, since it cuts a few seconds off of work and helps maintain a rhythm.

With simple navigation and an amazing range of options, it won't take the full 90-day trial to realize how this program ASAP Utilities enhances your work with Excel. We recommend it unreservedly.
