smozgur submitted a new Excel Add-in:

XL2BB - Excel Range to BBCode - Convert your Excel range to BBCode

Although experts prefer to read your description and question instead of working in your actual file to solve your problem, there are times that it is difficult to explain an issue without providing actual data with formulas and extra information in an Excel-friendly format.

XL2BB captures the cells in the selected range and converts it to a special BB code hash that you can paste into a post. Resulting mini-sheet can be copied and pasted back to an Excel worksheet with formulas and formatting that provides a simple way to exchange sample range between the post and Excel application.

Hi,

I have installed XL2BB addin and it's when my problems with Excel started.
Often when I open any excel file, or even a new workbook Excel uses 100% of CPU. I have to kill it using Task Manager and reopen again. This helps. At least until I try to open another file or I close Excel and after a while I open it again.
I deleted addin and problems are gone. Does anyone had such problems?
I use Excel 2016 with all available updates.
As a test I removed all addins I have, except XL2BB. Still problem remained.

Regards

Hi, Nard

I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with XL2BB addin in your computer.

XL2BB is a standard Excel addin which is not even using any external reference other than standard libraries so we can make sure that it runs in a wide range of Excel versions including Mac, and it only works when you click on the button on the ribbon, so it doesn't do anything in the background without user interaction. More importantly we have never heard such a problem that you explained. Therefore I can only think that it could be something related with your configuration.

Hi, smozgur

Thanks for info.
To be honest I don't know what was the problem. After I have reinstalled the add-in I don't have problems with excel. I hope it stays like this. ;)
One interesting thing. After I have installed it for the first time add-in was able to generate BB code, but for some reason formula names were in polish language. Normally add-in should translate them to english. After reinstall all is ok.

Hello, great add-in before all.

I would like to suggest the idea of inputting BBCode (English) and transforming it into your Excel language (Spanish, French, ...), so the formulas work.
For example: =SUM -> =SUMA / ,->;

Sometimes I see very nice ideas in the forum that I would like to store, but unfortunatelly, copying-pasting the BBCode into my own Excel file pastes the formulas in English.

Thank you.
