Put spreadsheets under reliable version control

Track changesand retrieve any previous spreadsheet version

  • The change log maintains clear records of version history: who changed the file and when. Add comments while committing a version to change log.

Before version control I was basically duplicating spreadsheets, literally renaming the files. But when you start circulating a spreadsheet, it’s difficult to keep tabs on who does what. It’s really easy with XLTools to see what happened from one generation of a spreadsheet to another.

Compare versionsand see what was changed in a workbook

  • Compare any two versions of a worksheet and see the differences highlighted. Easily review what was changed from version to version.

We have a critical spreadsheet that we use in our equipment testing process. It’s important that we track the changes, go back and review that at any point. The power of XLTools for me is that it can display exactly what’s been changed, and differences are clearly indicated.
