Yes. Each QE Tools analysis creates its own live Excel worksheet and uses standard Excel features and objects. Thus, you can select and modify any of the objects just as you would in Excel. Chart title, axes, colors, styles and formats are all customizable.
Each QE Tools analysis creates its own worksheet with a copy of the data from the variable data entry worksheet. Data modified in the entry worksheet will be used in all analyses following the data change. Charts, graphs and analyses previously performed must be modified by updating data in the worksheet for that specific tool. Alternatively, you can rerun the analyses once the data have been modified in the variable data entry sheet.
Yes. However, when one of the QE Tools analyses is initiated, the data values from the variable data entry sheet are copied to the new analysis tool worksheet. Thus, making a change to one of the data entries in the newly created analysis worksheet will not cause the data to update in dependent formula cells. The data are copied as values and represent a snapshot of the variable data entry sheet upon creation.
QE Tools operates as an Add-in within Excel and does not limit the number of output sheets. According to Microsoft the number of worksheets is a workbook is "limited only by avalable memory" though performance can degrade with large workbooks (a function of many factors and is related by the number of sheets). QE Tools provides a warning when the QE Tools project file contains thirty (30) worksheets as it may be possible that unnecessary worksheets are being maintained and thereby inflating file size and reducing performance.
QE Tools uses an algorithm to reduce long variable names to fifteen (15) characters. For variables whose names are greater than fifteen (15) characters in length, the first eight (8) and last (7) characters combine to a new variable name.
Yes. You have the option to select data from a “range” rather than selecting data from the available variable data on the data entry worksheet. [show me]
