Get Your Numbers Right


Versions of xlPrecision for Excel 95 (7.0) and earlier are not available. If you are interested in using xlPrecision on Excel 95 or earlier, please let me know, and be sure to mention what version or versions of Excel you are interested in running it on.


Excel 95 (7.0)

Excel 95 (7.0) would require a new xlPrecision.xla, which I started a while back but will probably never finish now that Excel 2007 has released. Requires doing a few things in older, more tedious ways. Let me know if you're interested in this. As of May 2007, I have only received a couple of requests since the first version of xlPrecision was released in July 2003.


Excel 5.0

Excel 5.0 (except for the little-used 5.0 for NT) is a 16-bit EXE, and xlPrecision is a 32-bit DLL. A 16-bit EXE can't call a 32-bit DLL. In addition to the new xlPrecision.xla for Excel 95, I would also need to write a 32-bit EXE to interface between Excel 5.0 and xlPrecision. COM in Windows automatically does the thunking (bitness translation) between a 16-bit EXE and a 32-bit EXE. And, no problem calling xlPrecision from the 32-bit EXE. This project wouldn't be too much work if there is much interest.

As of May 2007, I have never received a request for this. Now that Excel 2007 has released, I will probably never do this project.

Excel 5.0 was released in late 1993.


Excel 4.0 and earlier

Excel 4.0 and earlier would require a DDE interface. This project is unlikely to ever be the best use of time and resources. Excel 4.0 was released in 1992.
