I was happily using ASAP Utilities on my old computer running Windows XP+Office 2003/2007. Now I bought a new laptop, and using Windows 10 and Office 2016, both 64-bit.

Now I see that it was a mistake to install 64-bit of Office as
- I don't edit huge Office files, and
- ASAP Utilities do not work on 64-bit Office

Well, if I cannot find a similar (and preferably free) tool, I will go back to Office 32-bit. But I still hope there may be a good alternative to

Revert to 32-bit Office Dec 7, 2015

This is probably the most reasonable option, especially since many other VBA applications don’t work in 64-bit Office.

Just out of curiosity: what do you use ASAP Utilities for in the first place?

Kutools for Excel Dec 7, 2015

Try Kutools for Excel. It's not worse than ASAP Utilities and it supports 64-bit systems.
I've been using Kutools for Excel for over a year and I am happy with it.

There's also another alternative, which is AbleBits Ultimate Suite for Excel that offers 40+ professional tools.

Purposes of ASAP Utilities Dec 7, 2015

ASAP Utilities can be used for editing Excel sheets. For instance, I use it for editing tmx files. Of course, you can edit a tmx TM in Olifant or Heartsome TMX Editor but with Excel tools you can do way more. For example, you can sort data, select data as you need. You can select certain rows, not necessarily in the right order, and then move the rows to another sheet, or you can change text to UPPER case, delete leading and trailing spaces, delete some leading or trailing characters and much more. Cleaning large TMs becomes a breeze.

Reverting to 32-bit is an option, but the risk of data loss or settings in Outlook makes me hesitate. If I uninstall Office completely I will have to make account settings once again, which I am not comfortable with. Besides, I am not sure if my Outlook pst file (currently 64 bit) will cause a problem or not.

99%, if not all, of my projects come in Excel format, and ASAP tools is a time saver for me. Sure, I use only a few functions in ASAP Utilities.

Thanks, both Kutools and AbleBits look like good alternatives, full with features. I will first try Kutools.

ASAP Utilities is a set of macros Oct 15, 2018

Hi Susmith,

If you are an advanced user of Excel you may not need ASAP Utilities (which is a set of macros for Excel). Excel alone will be sufficient for many operations. But I am not a power user of Excel and therefore ASAP Utilities helps me a lot.

I rarely use Excel to edit my TMX files, in many cases Notepad+ is sufficient for me. But as Andriy Yasharov mentioned Excel+ASAP Utilities is good for many tasks.

Seems to work on a 64-bits flavour of Windows/Office :
