Custom Menu

So much of what I do for my internal customers is repetitive. We quickly realized that if we built them an Excel add-ins toolkit, they could do a lot of the grunt work themselves.

The toolkit is constantly evolving and growing. I actually added 2 tools today and fixed a few little bugs.

The red box in the example is simply hiding the name of the company I wrote this for. None of the other information is confidential. I used one of my tools this morning and it ran so fast that I thought it did not work.
