$40 bucks - way too expensive for a program that does so little. You have come to this community so that more people get to know your product and your company and to get feedback.

We want your success - there is a need for this for some people. Some suggestions

1. include the other popular MS office products - not just Excel
2. bring the price do below $10
3. pitch the product at the corporte market
4. also pitch it at the financial consultants market

A suggestion to the developer. Since you have one domain per application you could go some way to improving your search engine rating to inter-link the projects so they no longer apear as a bunch of lonely websites but part of a community of websites.

This program is intended to fulfill the particular need of quite a narrow audience of users. Simply too narrow for GOTD, I'd say.

MadCityObserver, but this developer is pretty much who GAOTD is intended for, a small developer with very limited marketing budget needing to increase his web exposure.

WOW! Normal price is $40 ???
For something you can do yourself with a VBA Macro???
You got to be kidding me!
There are programs which do far more (and at least complicated) things for far less than that.
Talking about greedy.......

Even the 22MB installation space is way to high for not even 100 lines of code.

Do it yourself with a simple VBA Macro. Internet is full of them. Example:

The program itself, Excel Url Validator.exe; also warnings:

Excel Url Validator Support, oh wow I thought this was to check URL's to other worksheets and other spreadsheets locally... not web addresses!

This application checks the validity of internet links. It would be helpful to have a similar application that checks the validity of file paths on a computer or LAN that are listed on a spreadsheet or other text based document.

HJ B, Thanks for the suggestion.Will will implement it in the coming update.

From their website
"About Excel Url Validator

Excel Url Validator is developed and Supported by a small company that focuses on Delivering products that revolutionize the common workflow.We are part of the Microsoft Bizspark startup accelerator program and we strive to deliver perfection."

I'd expect a bit more information on a company before I consider installing software, some company details, address, country so I can assess their credibility and reputation.
This is regardless on if free or paid - on the subject of paid, $40 would put me off purchasing this unless it offered more than just URL checks.

You can do the same natively with VBA

bob, I suspect you'll find with a little more research that this "small company" is a lone developer. His name is in the Copyright line in the setup.exe embedded version info.

Will this work for MS Office compatible programs such as Libre Office, Open Office, etc?

Reply   |   Comment by dadams  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+14)

dadams, It only works with .xlsx format files.

Reply   |   Comment by Excel Url Validator Support  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

Excel Url Validator Support, here's a suggestion support .XLS and .CSV too and maybe simple text file list of webURL's since that is all it is checking!
