Product information

mightymacros Dat Lite is a free cut down version of Dat add-in and can help to identify uncaptured duplicate invoices before they become duplicate payments.

The tool compares all invoices, both historical and pending against unpaid bills, to produce a split report output for review.

The capture logic is broadly based on the following variable rules:

  1. Different reference
  2. Different document date
  3. Different vendor number
  4. Different amount:

The program is an Excel com add-in, and installs to a default location on the user's local application folder.

C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Local\mightymacros\

The program installs onto Excel's ribbon menu next to the 'Help' menu.

For Installation details, refer to Help with Install.
