The Excel Replicator tool allows users to replicate excel file(s) for a given list of file names.
Sample Usage: Education
Teachers may create a rubric template in an excel file for a given assignment. Suppose the teacher has 100 students, saving as the name of the student will take a very long time and sometimes even overwrite an older file.
The Excel Replicator tool comes in handy in this case. By having a template excel file, in this case, the rubric for an assignment, the teacher has to paste the list of names to generate the excel files.
Upon adding the names of the students in the text file, the teacher needs to run the program, select the rubric template (s) and let the program do its job.
Once the program concludes, the Results folder will have all the Excel files replicated for the given names of students for each rubric selected for replication.
