Consultancy and AdviceMicrosoft MVP logo

We are happy to provide consultancy and advice to others who want to achieve similar results.

In 1995 Bill Manville was the first person in Europe to be designated a Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) for the advice he had given to other users of Excel on Compuserve and Microsoft Answers forums. He was re-awarded MVP status every year from then until 2018.


We have developed various utility programs in Microsoft Excel which are available for free download. They include programs to detect and manage links between Excel workbooks.
