Some tips

  • Readme.pdf
    After you UnZip all files you should open the Readme.pdf which shows you how to install the Scriptsheets.xlam file!
  • Auditing toolbar
    Microsoft Excel provides tools that help you track down data in your worksheets, just open the Auditing toolbar. You then can trace the precedents (the cells that provide data to a specific cell) or you can trace the dependents (the cells that depend on the value in a specific cell).
  • Create names to represent cells
    If you build many formulas which depend on lots of cells throughout your workbook, you should create names for these cells.
    That way you can use the name in formulas which makes them easier to understand.
  • Change security level for macro virus protection to medium
    MS Excel uses security levels for macro virus protection.
    If the security level is set to high then macros are automaticlly disabled when a workbook is opened!
    Each scriptsheet workbook contains additional worksheet functions which are implemented as VBA macro’s.
