Gizmo's freeware: This $49 Excel Add-In Is Still Available Free. And It's Better Than Ever.

Review by Gizmo' Freeware: This $49 Excel Add-In Is Still Available Free. And It's Better Than Ever.

This $49 Excel Add-In Is Still Available Free. And It's Better Than Ever.

More than a year ago, I wrote about a great collection of add-utilities for Excel.  Since then, the program has continued to improve.  It now has more than 200,000 users in 90 countries, and boasts more than 300 new features which it adds to all versions of Excel from 2000 to 2010.  The most recent update to the system was just last week.

The program is called the ASAP Utilities.  As you can see from the screen shot below, all of its features are handily grouped together on a ribbon menu, and the dropdown shows just how feature-packed this program is.

If you use Excel, at whatever level, give this program a try.  It really does promise to make your life a whole lot easier.  It's an 8 MB download from http://www.asap-utilities.com/ and VirusTotal reports it as free of malware and viruses.  

ASAP Utilities costs $49 if you use it for commercial purposes.  But for home, student and charity use, it's free ot charge.

Lifehacker: Download of the Day: ASAP Utilities

28 july 2006

We're proud to mention that yesterday ASAP Utilities has been reviewed by Lifehacker.com and made download of the day!

ASAP Utilities gives the user over 300 different Excel utilities and shortcuts to choose from, from Vision Control to Objects.

Not being a power Excel user, I'm sure I wasn't able to really tweak this utility to its full potential; however, from what I was able to do with it, I was very impressed. Instead of wasting two hours on, say, trying to figure out how to copy a few formulas without changing their references, you can just use the ASAP Utilities drop-down Range function. ASAP Utilities is a free download, Windows only.

ASAP Utilities Provides Excel Users Power and Flexibility
Excel is one of the pillars of Microsoft Office. Despite being feature-rich, there are some tasks that are either cumbersome to perform or are buried in the program. That shouldn't stop you from using Excel, as there are some third party tools that nicely complement the program. One example is the free add-in from Bastien Mensink called ASAP Utilities that provides easy access to over 300 utilities.

Computer Idee: 'ASAP Utilities makes the life of every Excel-user easier'

1 march 2004

Computer Idee is an easy-to-understand dutch computer magazine.

Computer IdeeComputer Idee:

'U vindt in uw lijfblad regelmatig workshops waarmee u in Excel prachtige dingen kunt maken. Vaak wel een hoop werk, maar de moeite waard! Een deel van dat werk kunt u zich besparen dankzij de tip van Martin van Dam. Hij wees ons namelijk op ASAP Utilities, een schitterende verzameling van enkele honderden macro's voor alle Excel-versies vanaf '97. Een macro is een verzameling handelingen die u met één muisklik kunt uitvoeren en dat levert natuurlijk volop tijdswinst op.

ASAP Utilities bevat functies op allerlei gebied: zoals het opmaken en converteren van cellen en snel verwijderen van bepaalde objecten. Deze verzameling hulpjes is dan ook een must voor elke Excel-gebruiker.'

The Courier-Mail: ASAP saves time [28feb04]Terry OConnor - It's been claimed that the most widely used database program in the world isn't a database program - it's Microsoft Excel.

That might even be true because Excel is so powerful and so flexible that countless people use it for record-keeping and address books.

But Excel's power means myriad functions and they're not always easy to find or use. Which is where add-ons such as ASAP Utilities come in.
