Note that it shows the value in each cell next to its address and also highlights references which evaluate to an error in red automatically.

If there are any objects using the current cell, those will be shown in black. Validation formula references and conditional formatting formula references are shown in black as well.

The Visualize option shows improved trace precedents arrows:

Does RefTreeAnalyser check if a conditional format or a volatile function is dependant on a specific cell (both of which Excel's 'Trace Dependants' cannot)?

Hi Anthony,

Yes it does!
What kind of "Volatile" function do you mean? INDIRECT? It doesn't do those.

What does the Formula Report look like? Can you provide a screenshot? I assume this would be an Excel file.
