If you purchased a license in 2015 or longer ago, then please contact us for a 50% discount to upgrade to version 8.

To upgrade to a newer version of ASAP Utilities that is covered by your license, just install the new version "on top" of the existing version on your computer.
ASAP Utilities will then automatically recognize your settings and license information if you have already entered that previously.

Tip of the day - Discover more features

By request, a daily tip to get to know ASAP Utilities better.

ASAP Utilities contains an incredible amount of small handy tools and it might be hard to remember them all.
Each day we show you a handy tool that you may have forgotten about or never knew existed.
Tip of the day

Count duplicates and give each set of duplicates its own color

Improved. Better distinctive colors and use of patterns are used.
This allows now to identify up to 264 sets of duplicated values with unique colors.
(In case more sets of duplicates are found, those remaining sets of duplicates are filled with the same color.)

Find and run a utility...

Upon request you can now toggle between showing the full descriptions or not. The advantage is that the list of tools found is quicker to scroll through without the descriptions.

If you afterwards change the indent level in any of the referenced cells, you have to press Control+Alt+F9 to have the formulas recalculated.

New optional parameter; strip_leading_zeros

  • Many (smaller but important) improvements.
  • By request; the license info screen now contains a button to remove the license.

Minimum supported Excel version is 2010

Starting from version 8, ASAP Utilities requires at least Excel 2010, but we recommend to use at least Excel 2013 because that is still updated by Microsoft.
For many years already Microsoft no longer supports old Excel versions. By using such an old Excel version you could expose yourself to serious and potentially harmful security risks that may be in those old Excel versions.
Currently the oldest version of Excel that Microsoft still updates is Excel 2013.
