XPlus is a Open Source, MIT Licensed function library for Microsoft Excel written in pure VBA which adds over 150 new functions to the Excel. These functions include everything from some basic String Manipulation functions to some functions for performing Fuzzy String Matches to Cryptographic functions to utility functions for more easier working with ranges, and many more.
One important feature of XPlus is its portability. Since XPlus is written in pure VBA, and since VBA modules and source code can be included into the actual Excel files, XPlus can be shipped along with Excel files. This means that you don't need to worry about if someone you send your file to has XPlus installed since it can be included into the workbook, and thus will be "installed" into the workbook itself. Additionally, the XPlus source code has been minified (using XMinifier) to make XPlus as small as possible (~90 KB in size), making it very light to incorporate into a workbook and to ship to other Excel users who don't have it installed locally. Finally, XPlus is Licensed under an MIT license, and thus has very little restrictions on use, meaning that you can include XPlus in your workbook and send it to other users free of charge for both commerical and personal use! See the full license below for more details.
XPlus is broken down into a series of modules each containing functions based on that module. Currently XPlus includes the following modules:
