The feature ‘Constants’ summarizes all the constants in your spreadsheet, including the exact locations and where in your spreadsheet references are made to these constants. This overview helps you determine which numbers are fundamental to your results and to verify the assumptions of your spreadsheet.

Overview of Constants

In the overview of constants you find a table that lists all the constants that PerfectXL detects in your spreadsheet. The first column shows in which worksheet the constant was found, the second column shows you the exact cell within that worksheet. In the last column you’ll find where in your spreadsheet the constant is used or referred to.
