General Spreadsheet Characteristics

Curious to see what your spreadsheet’s all about? PerfectXL Explore gives you a great starting point. An overview of worksheets, input sources and potential risks are all part of our general spreadsheet characteristics section. It also gives you an insight into the amount of formulas used in your spreadsheet.

Spreadsheet Portfolio Management

Upload as many spreadsheets as you want and PerfectXL Explore will analyze them. You can either drag and drop a spreadsheet from your computer or choose to upload a file manually. PerfectXL Explore’s portfolio gives you an excellent overview of the spreadsheets you’ve uploaded (and analyzed) over time. You can assign custom categories to any spreadsheet to retrieve them more easily, like ‘important’, ‘to do’ or ‘new report’. Or you can filter your list by the spreadsheet analysis (upload) date, the amount of worksheets, the amount of risks or the amount of high risks.

Spreadsheet Key Indicators

Key indicators give insight in the major aspects of your spreadsheet. How many formulas does it contain? Is the spreadsheet safe enough to use? Are there any (high) risks to take into consideration? The key indicators also provide you with general information like the document size and the amount of worksheets and more specific information, like the amount of calculations and the longest formula.

Spreadsheet Characteristics

The spreadsheet characteristics overview sums up the characteristics of the entire sheet, but also of each worksheet separately. Additionally the user is provided with information about the cells and external sources.
