Conditional Formatting

Intuitively present workbook data to your users

Similar to charts and sparklines, conditional formatting provides another way to visualize data. You can highlight cells based on specified criteria without writing a single line of code. Cells can be highlighted with data bars, icons and predefined color scales.

End-users can easily apply a varity of predefined style conditions and make worksheets easier to understand. Integrated Ribbon UI allows end-users to add, change, or remove conditional formatting styles much like they do in Microsoft Excel.

You can also use cell styles to apply predefined formats, and other manual formatting options to highlight important data. Cell value formatting options include:

  • Style Flags, Predefined Cell Styles and Formats
  • Rich Text Formatting
  • Format as Table
  • Custom Draw API

Group, Sort and Filter

Organize and search data easily

  • Outlines (Group Data)
    Provide your end-users the ability to arrange related columns and rows into collapsible groups, as well as to create a quick summary. Outlines can either be created manually or automatically for an entire worksheet or just for a range of data.

  • Sort Spreadsheet Data
    Sort worksheet data against any number of columns. Treat cell values as text (to sort alphabetically, according to the current culture), numbers, or date-time values.

  • Filter Cell Values
    You can filter data in a range or table. Enable AutoFilter and filter by values or use built-in type-specific comparison operators such as 'greater than' and 'begins with' to show data you want and hide the rest.

  • Find / Replace
    You can search within a worksheet, specify whether the operation should be case-sensitive, and search using regular expressions.

Protection & Security

Protect your work and prevent anauthorized access

Password encryption prevents unauthorized users from opening or modifying your workbooks. You can restrict changes to workbooks, worksheets, and specific ranges. In a protected workbook, users are not allowed to add, delete or rename worksheets.

Various sheets can have different protection levels. For instance, you can unlock a range for some users while other users may be prompted for a password.

You can configure which actions are available to users and which are restricted. Unavailable operations will be hidden from corresponding context menus and disabled in Ribbon UI.
