Free Add-In


I have stopped updating this blog. This link can also be found in my Website.

Hello All

I am planning to create a FREE VSTO Excel Add-In which can be used by every one. I would request you to leave your requests here. Let me know what would you want to have in that Add-In Smile

The Add-In will have an Installer/Un-Installer so you can don’t have to worry about installing it. I intend to make this the BIGGEST multipurpose FREE Add-In available on the web.

I will maintain a list here which will reflect your request and number of requests received per request. It goes unsaid that the request will be prioritize as per “number of requests received”. So keep your requests coming. 😉

Please feel free to tweet this or share in FB so that we can get maximum suggestions.


UPDATE 1 (4th Aug 2012): Thanks to Stefan. I have incorporated some suggestions given by him.

    Hi, I have a small number of funcions that I’ve created my own add-in for, but never have the time to develop it properly. But just to add to your list:

    Toggle sign: the values of numeric cells in the selected range(s) are multiplied by -1 (I allow user to decide if cells containing formulas should also be toggled and if they do, wrap the formula in -1*( ).

    Convert to millions/thousands: divide values in selected range(s) by 1,000,000 or 1,000.

    Trim: Trim spaces from selected range.

    Convert to text: properly convert values and formats of cells in selected range(s) to text.

    Convert to values: result is the same as pastespecial -> values.

    Convert to Proper/UPPER/lower case.

    Remove first/last n characters

    Center across selection: set horizontal alignment of selected range to “Center across selection”. I use this to avoid merging cells.

    GoTo: I like having some of the goto special cells options on the ribbon. I have blank cells, formulas, constants, visible cells only, data validation and conditional formatting as options of cells to go to.

    Lastly I have 3 arbitrary functions that I find useful from time to time: Remove unused pivot items; Copy page setup; List files in a folder (this lists the filenames contained in a folder selected by the user in a new workbook).

    Look forward to seeing your add-in.
