Reviews for this release

     
Downloaded and tested on several files used to create rosters for groups. Relatively simple but one had bloated to 75MB -- took a long time to open and to save. Excel File Cleaner reduced to 0.5MB. Though I haven't extensively tested, based on some initial testing full functionality of formulas preserved. [Incidentally, appears it will not clean a macro enabled file-->not a major issue for me.]

Had a user with an excel file with only 40 rows balloon up to 56 MB, taking forever to load. Excel file cleaner reduced the file size to 36KB, and took about 2-3 minutes on a laptop with an i7-4600 processor and 8GB of DDR3L-1600. This tool works very well.
