What Does the Excel RFP Inspector Do?

The Expedience RFP Inspector is a Microsoft Excel based tool that allows you to inspect an Excel RFP or other spreadsheet, for restrictions and criteria, even if the Spreadsheet is protected.

Accelerator Ribbon

Inspect Cell Data Validation

In some Excel RFPs there are restrictions on the type or length of individual responses. To inspect the criteria applied to a given cell, simply put the cursor in the cell and click ‘Cell Data Validation.’

Inspect a Worksheet's Protection Settings

If a Worksheet is protected it becomes difficult to predict what restrictions and criteria may apply to the types and length of RFP responses. To evaluate the conditions placed on a protected sheet, click 'Worksheet Protection.'

The RFP Inspector will display a summary of the types of restrictions and criteria that apply to the current worksheet. (For more information on Excel settings, see the Expedience Blog.)

Generate Complete RFP Report

An Excel workbook will be created based on the current workbook. The conditions and restrictions will be listed in the relevant cells.
