What is this Product?

ExcelPipe is a mass search and replace tool designed to ease the editing of hundreds or thousands of spreadsheets when they all need changing, such as changing an organization's phone number, address, web site, CEO etc.

ExcelPipe takes ALL the hard work out of replacing text across multiple Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheets. Just imagine - next time your organization changes its phone number, address, web site or CEO - just run ExcelPipe across your file server or website to fix all affected spreadsheets in one hit. Translators can use ExcelPipe's grid to define multiple search/replace pairs.

Search and Replace multiple Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. Change hyperlinks and UNC paths when servers get renamed; update contact details such as names, addresses and phone numbers; translate spreadsheets with find/replace lists; update Microsoft SharePoint documents or Microsoft Namespace Server mappings.

Using ExcelPipe is simple. 1) Drag and drop files from Windows Explorer to ExcelPipe, or right-click the files or folders to process in Windows Explorer and choose ExcelPipe. 2) Add one or more search/replace pairs. 3) Go!

ExcelPipe can change thousands or millions of spreadsheets, and can make multiple changes simultaneously to save time. It automatically handles read-only files, passwords and other protection, and it can be automated to run overnight or over a weekend. No user interaction is required. It even includes restart recovery in case Microsoft Excel crashes!

ExcelPipe offers many more search and replace options than Microsoft Excel; such as hyperlinks, text boxes, shapes, document properties (such as Title, Subject, Author, Company etc) and more. EasyPatterns and Perl regex patterns can also be used.

Unlike competing products, ExcelPipe is fully Unicode compliant (allowing Find and Replace with international character sets), and can handle an unlimited number of spreadsheets and find/replace pairs. ExcelPipe can also update ISO-9001 version numbers.

  • Standardizing corporate name changes such as your organization's phone number, address, web site or CEO

System Requirements
  • Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, 2003 Server, Vista and Vista 64
  • All versions of Microsoft Excel ( 98, 2000, 2002, XP, 2003, 2007 ) or Microsoft Office ( 98, 2000, 2002, XP, 2003, 2007 ), but not Excel 97
  • Hard Disk with 2 MB free disk space
  • 32 MB RAM

Multi-user, Site and Enterprise licenses are also available to enhance the efficiency of your entire team.

Note: Under Excel 97 and earlier, the Search Inside Hyperlink Addresses feature does not work because in these versions of Excel the hyperlink address is read-only, not read/write as in later versions. Excel 98 and onwards all work properly. Note that this does not affect the ability of ExcelPipe to search and replace the hyperlink displayed text - which is quite different to the actual hyperlink address.
