Customer Review

Here's what one customer had to say about the Contextures Excel Tools add-in:

"We are land developers/builders of single family homes in Southern California.  We rely heavily on excel.  For many decades, we were struggling backing up our Excel workbooks until we found Debra's Excel backup add-in.

The add-in works great and has basically solved our backing up dilemma.  Out of the blue, Microsoft changed the add-in behavior blanket-wise, and without warning.  Once the add-in failed, Debra did not hesitate to answer each and every of my emails, all within moments whenever possible, and she went out of her way to find the root of the problem.  I was pleased to see how much pride she takes in her work, and especially her diligent communication skills.

You out there: if you ever need Excel help, I can assure you that Debra is your programmer if you are looking for a professional to hire." -- Alex
