Excel is a very powerful tool. You can manipulate and display data in so many different ways. If you want a border or a new background color then this can applied quickly and easily. Number formatting is a little trickier though. Sure, Excel provides a host of options within the number formatting section of the menus. However, what if you want something which which is not on the standard menu? In these circumstances you could create a custom number format. But custom number formats have a number of short comings:
- They only exist within each individual workbook. If you start a new workbook, you have to create them all over again.
- They are so easy to get wrong, even if you apply the same formats over and over again in different workbooks. It just requires a small typing error and the format will display incorrectly.
- You almost need to be an Excel expert just to be able to apply custom number formats.
The Flip Add-in is the tool which solves this problem.
I would spend several minutes each day just formatting numbers to look how I wanted. It may not sound like much, but those minutes soon add up. My time is too valuable to carry out the same unnecessary task over and over again. This is why I created this Add-in.
How about your time? Surely your time is more valuable than to have to carry out the same unnecessary task over and over again.
Whether you work in Science, Engineering, Education, Finance or any other area, the Flip Add-in can save you time every single day.
How does Flip work?
Flip enables you to create up to 8 different custom number formats, which can be accessed on any workbook at any time, with a single click. Sounds good doesn’t it?
Once installed, Flip will create additional buttons within the menu. These buttons will apply the number format to the cells selected with a single click.
To create your own formats, simply click on the Settings button. The Flip Format Settings window will open.
You can create up to 8 formats. Each format has 3 settings:
- Name – this is the description which appears on the menu
- Format – this is the code for the custom number format to be applied
- Display – this option box determines which formats are displayed on the menu.
If learning how to use custom number formats seems like too much effort then you’re in luck. The icon will import the number format of the selected cell. So you do not need to know any custom number formatting. You can identify the number formats you like on existing worksheets, and simply click this icon to import the format. Then, just give the format a name, click the display option and click Save. The format is now saved, ready for you to apply to all of your workbooks.
Even if you can create your favorite number formats by amending the default options, the Flip Add-in is still significantly faster. Selecting a default option and amending it will require multiple mouse clicks, but with Flip, the setting can be applied with a single click. Just import the formats of existing formatted cells. All of your formats will be available in a single location. You may never need to use the standard formatting options again.
