NEW: Find Duplicate Cells

With Find Duplicate Cells, you can look for duplicate or unique cells with or without 1st occurrences in the range you select. You can specify what cell similarities are important for you: values, formulas, background, font color, or any combination of these options. There are various ways to process the found items:

  • Clear all (contents, formatting and comments)
  • Clear contents
  • Clear formats
  • Highlight cells with color
  • Select cells

Remove Duplicate Substrings can find and remove duplicates within a cell. You just choose the delimiter used, decide whether the text case of the substrings is important or not, and then you get clear unique data in each cell.

IMPROVED: Compare sheets from OneDrive

Now you can compare sheets from OneDrive with the Compare Two Sheets tool. For this, make sure that files are synced and opened from your local device.

IMPROVED: Case sensitivity in Count Characters

Now you can make the Count Characters tool count certain characters in the selected text case only.

IMPROVED: Case sensitivity in Remove Characters

Now you can delete values only of the same text case with the Remove Characters option.

IMPROVED: Load on demand

If you don't need Ultimate Suite each time you use Excel, you can turn on the Load on demand option. In this case, to the add-in will be loaded into Excel only after you click on any Ablebits button. To turn it on, go to Ablebits Data → Options → Load on demand. The option is available for activated licenses only.

IMPORTANT: No support for Excel 2007

Please note that we had to stop the support for Excel 2007 since Microsoft no longer provides bug and security fixes for Office 2007.
