What is LAselect?
LAselect is a professional sorting framework for Microsoft Visual Basic and Excel. It does not rely on Excel's sorter and can therefor offer a myriad of additional sorting functionality. LAselect is fully programmable and will sort any standard or non-standard data types. It's also an indexer, list generator, data mining tool and anything in between. It can use regular expressions to sort or gather any information one could throw at it.
Applications for LAselect
LAselect is fully programmable and consequently hard to put into a specific category. It offers new ways to look at information and puts that in the most useful order for a given task; not necessarily following alphabetical or numerical rules. LAselect has applications that range from from a simple address sort to real-time complex, fuzzy or weighted sorting for cost per click marketing campaigns, share portfolios and data-mining.
Testbench and Showcase
Hasoft provides a free Excel testbench application on their website. It's templates are used as-is or serve as starting point for new developments. The testbench doubles as an interactive showcase and offers instant hands-on experience when you play with the numbers.
A full license for LAselect can temporarily be purchased from the website at a reduced price with this promotional code: PRLOGLASMAR312013
