I do a lot of work with EXCEL but usually only use basic editing. I spend way too much time trying to keep Excel from reformating text or changing values I don't want changed.

Bravo! Ron's Editor is a real time and frustration saver. The Merge Column alone is worth the price of admission. A nice clean inter face makes for an exceptionally low learning curve. Well done!
