Spreadspeed Auditor Feature Tour

Excel Audit Reports

Spreadspeed Auditor includes a number of auditing reports to help you document and analyze the content of your workbooks. The reports can be generated via the Spreadspeed ribbon and are output to a new worksheet in the active workbook. This page contains a complete listing of the available reports.

Worksheet Comparison Report

This is a companion report for the Compare Worksheets auditing tool. Given two user-specified worksheets, the generated report will list all the cells with formula, value, number format, date format, and style differences. Like all the other reports listed on this page, it will also contain a link to the cell in question on the audit worksheet.
