Love the products!

Love the products! They have saved me thousands of hours and they are responsible for me getting a promotion at my last job, which helped me land my current position as a manager.

It's the best $100 we've ever spent!

I talked my supervisor into getting Ultimate Suite. I often deal with huge tables and matching between versions has always been a nightmare. He asked me about the new tools and I said: "It's the best $100 we've ever spent!" Indeed has saved me hours of work time. So, one big "Thanks!"

Mike Cavanagh

Incredible product, even better tech support…AbleBits totally delivers!

I use AbleBits every day and keep finding new uses. Changing jobs, I get my new employer to cough up the very reasonable cost of this software. There're things I just can't complete any other way in large datasets. My coworkers think I'm a wizard. But I'm just a religious user of AbleBits.

Deborah Bryant

Anyone who works with Excel is sure to find their work made easier by Ablebits

I've been using Ultimate Suite for almost a year and found it invaluable for my projects. I like the ability to merge tables based on 1 or more attributes, transpose columns and rows, and to transform data with Cell Cleaner utility. Plus, Ablebits' support is reliably fast and courteous.

Jackie Lee

Excel is at its best now

Ever since I found your add-ons, it has been a life saver or should I say a major time saver. I have bought two packages for both work computers. Excel is at its best now because of you. Thank you!

KUDOS to you guys for solving a problem that our IT department doesn't understand

Our IT thought they know how the sales department should function and destroyed some data files. With AbleBits I was able to regenerate my database in a few clicks. This was AWESOME. KUDOS to you guys for solving a problem that even our IT department doesn't understand.

Erik Peterson

AbleBits suite has really helped me when I was in a crunch!

Having AbleBits suite really helped me when I was in a crunch! It was intuitive and saved time on my job! Now I'm finding other capabilities I wasn't aware of, (first needed the easy merge capability). The other features are valuable time savers as well. Thanks for the product!

Nelda Fink

I love the program, and I can't imagine using Excel without it!

Thank you for your commitment to Ultimate Suite. I love the program, and can't imagine using Excel without it! The program paid for itself the first day I used it. Your team has created a really great set of tools for use within Excel. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Robert Madsen

One word… WOW!

One word… WOW! I recently bought the package of add-ins for Excel. I've used it ONCE and it has paid for itself. It literally saved me HOURS of work. KUDOS!

Dave Brown

I don't know how to thank you enough for your Excel add-ins

I don't know how to thank you enough. I stumbled upon your site figuring out how to merge 2 tables. When I saw a free trial, I thought how well is this going to work? I downloaded it and am AMAZED. I don't know how I lived without it. THANK YOU for making my life easier.

Jennifer Morningstar

Anybody who experiences it, is bound to love it!

Anybody who experiences it, is bound to love it! There're only 2 ways to "exploit" Excel's potential: be a geek or embrace Ultimate Suite. Why waste time on routines that can happen with a click of a mouse? Make use of Excel's capabilities without wasting time and energy.

Kumar Nepa

I love your product

I love your product. It really saves me a lot of time and makes my job much easier.

Brad Gibson

The best spent money on software I've ever spent!

I just have to tell you that I love your AbleBits Collection. I can't tell you how much time it has saved me, particularly Merge Tables Wizard, Duplicate Removers, Merge Cells Wizard, and Split Names. This was the best spent money on software I've ever spent!

Patrick Raugh

Tibor

It is like having an expert at my shoulder helping me…

I feel that Ablebits has people like me in mind with software development. It's like having an expert at my shoulder helping me work more efficiently. Now I have more time to goof off at work. Uh, that last statement isn't true - I just have a lot less stress as things go so much smoother.

Linda Shakespeare

Your software really helps make my job easier

Your software really helps make my job easier. I don't know what I would do without Duplicate Remover, I use it several times a day for every project I work on. Thanks for making my life easier.

Frequently asked questions

What is Excel Date Picker and what do I need it for?

Date Picker is a pop-up calendar that simplifies date entering in Excel. You do not have to type the dates manually anymore, but just run the utility and click on the needed date. The add-in will automatically paste it into the selected cell.

How to insert drop-down calendar in Excel?

Install Ultimate Suite for Excel and find the Date Picker add-in on the Ablebits Tools pane. Click on the Date Picker icon - the utility is activated. Now you can select a cell, right-click it and see a new option in the drop-down menu - Select date from calendar. If you choose this option, the pop-up calendar will appear. Now you can find the date in the calendar, click on it and get it inserted into the initially chosen cell.

Please find more information here

Does the week start on Monday or Sunday in the Date Picker calendar?

The utility takes settings from the Windows calendar on your computer. If your week there starts on Sunday, it will start with Sunday on the Date Picket pane as well. The same is true about a week starting on Monday.

Can I choose any date in the past or in the future?

Almost. Due to the Excel's limitations, you won't be able to choose a date before the year 1900 and after 9999.

What about the date format?

By default, the utility uses the dd/mm/yyyy format. However, if you select a cell and set your format before picking the date, the utility will use the format you've chosen.

Can I subtract years or days from the date I choose?

Sure! For this use Date Calculator. Select a cell that contains a date value you want to use for calculations. Run Date Picker and click the calculator icon in the upper-right corner of the Date Picker pane. Enter the number of years, months, weeks, or days you want to subtract, and press Enter. The result date will be automatically inserted into the initially selected cell.

How to add weeks or months to the current date?

Easily. Select any empty cell and start Date Calculator. Enter the number of weeks, months, days, or years you want to add to the current day, and press Enter. The result date will appear in the initially selected cell.
