Become an Excel Hero

Excel is powerful... but not perfect.


Microsoft Excel—you use it every day. It’s a phenomenal tool for reporting, data analysis, accounting, dashboarding, and much more. But there are times when Excel can feel like your enemy.  

Can you relate to spending late nights at your desk with a spreadsheet, working 50-60 hour work weeks? Or how about feeling frustrated by too much time away from friends and family doing repetitive, boring, and remedial tasks?

The problem isn’t your Excel skill level—it’s Excel’s limited capability that’s holding you back from greater productivity. What if you could supercharge Excel and give yourself the edge to finish tasks more quickly?

Now you can with the Hero Tools Suite, an Excel add-in with more than 100 features that will help you automate processes and tackle everyday tasks faster. 

I’m Jon Acampora, the creator of the Hero Tools Suite and CEO of Excel Campus. Like you, I used to be held back by Excel. I knew there had to be a better way, which is why I’ve been creating add-ins for over a decade to enhance the software’s capability. 

My development team and I have created various functionalities that are now included in the Hero Tools Suite: PivotPal, Paste Buddy, Tab Hound + Tab Control, Filter Mate, Formatting Shortcuts, List Search, VLOOKUP Assistant, and Ultimate Date Picker.

"Hero Tools is the Excel upgrade you need to work more efficiently and finally master your spreadsheets."

Boost Excel + Enhance your Productivity
with Hero Tools.


We’ve combined all of our existing add-ins into the Hero Tools Suite.

The Hero Tools Ribbon, as pictured below, will appear in Excel after you install the add-in.

I’m Jon Acampora
creator of the Hero Tools Suite. 

Before I started developing add-ins to address some of Excel’s limitations, I spent over a decade geeking out over Excel in corporate finance and systems analysis roles.

My knowledge helped me become hyper-efficient. I regularly completed my weekly tasks in 40 hours, while many of my colleagues in the same role were stuck at their computers 60 to 80 hours each week.

My Excel expertise made me truly essential to my company. I became known as the go-to Excel guy and was a resource everyone relied on. When my company moved many of its jobs overseas, my position gave me the job security and freedom to continue working from home. No more commute!

Since 2008, I’ve been creating add-ins to improve Excel’s capabilities and help Excel users of all experience levels work smarter and more efficiently. And in 2010, I started Excel Campus because I wanted to teach others to maximize the software that had opened so many doors for me. Over the years, I’ve taught millions through the Excel Campus blog, YouTube channel, and online courses. Every day, over 38,000 people visit our site and watch our trainings.

I’ve been recognized with Microsoft’s Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award thanks to my commitment to sharing my knowledge and helping others learn. I’m also passionate about helping users gain greater functionality in Excel now through new features within Hero Tools instead of waiting on Microsoft to release them—if it ever does!

I invite you to supercharge your Excel capabilities with Hero Tools, so you can work more efficiently and reclaim your time.

Is Hero Tools right for you?


The Hero Tools Suite is NOT for worker bees who are content to manually update spreadsheets and workbooks all day, scrolling endlessly for the data they need.

However, if you:

  • are a self-starter and motivated learner.
  • are a professional who deals with data, systems, or reports.
  • often turn to Excel to solve problems, make decisions, and get results.
  • want to save more time and become productive in Excel.

Then the Hero Tools Suite is for you, regardless of your specific job title, field, or Excel skill level.

Financial Analysts • Sales Representatives • Marketers • Data Analysts • Engineers • Human Resources Professionals • Consultants • Managers • and more.

Has been key in developing new dashboard

 --- David W.

I’ve answered your questions so you can feel confident about your purchase.


What is an Excel add-in?

An add-in is a special type of Excel file (.xlam) that contains VBA code (macros + forms). You install the file on your computer once, and then it will open automatically whenever you run Excel. The Hero Tools tab will appear in the ribbon (toolbar) where you will access the features of the app.

I’m already short on time—how will this add-in help?

The Hero Tools Suite is designed to help you stop feeling so overworked. As soon as you install the add-in, you’ll unlock keyboard shortcuts and greater Excel functionality that will save you time on everyday tasks and processes. Soon, the minutes you save every day will add up to serious amounts of time that you’ll get back both in your workday and in your life.

And if you choose to receive annual updates to Hero Tools, you’ll gain access to new features as they are published. Hero Tools has a dedicated development team that's always working on updates. With each new feature, you’ll save even more time and energy.

What version of Excel do I need?

The Hero Tools Suite add-in is compatible with Excel 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019, and Office 365 for Windows (either 32-bit or 64-bit). Please note: at this time, this add-in only works on PCs. Compatibility with Mac is not supported at this time.

How do I install the add-in on my computer?

The Hero Tools Suite combines all features into one add-in that you only have to install once to access everything. You can download and install your add-in immediately after purchase.

You will also receive detailed instructions for the installation, which has been streamlined to a simply download a file and click a few buttons.

We’ve removed the typical hassle of installing an add-in so you can start using your new Excel features right away.

However, the add-in does NOT use an installer or exe file.  If your employer has restrictions on installing new applications, you should still be able to install the Hero Tools Add-in.

The add-in is a special Excel file type (xlam) that is saved to your hard drive and then enabled through the Add-ins Manager within Excel.  It does NOT require you to run a typical application installer.

Over time, when new features are released, the add-in will prompt you to update automatically.

How do I get the add-in once I make a purchase?

You will be able to download your add-in immediately after purchase.  You will receive access to our members' area where you can download the file, access video & written instructions, ask questions, and contact our support team.

Can I install the add-in on multiple computers?

Yes, so long as there is only one user. Each add-in is intended for a single user and may be installed on up to three computers owned/used by that user at any one time.  This means you can use the same license on your home and work computers. 

You can also install the add-in on new computers that you get in the future.

You may NOT, however, share or distribute the files with other users. Your purchase entitles you to one license.

How do I learn all of the features for each add-in?

Each add-in included within the Hero Tools Suite has detailed, dedicated help pages, complete with video tutorials and guides to help you learn the features and start using them right away. You can access these help pages directly from the Hero Tools ribbon.

You will also get access to the Hero Tools Mini-Course which contains short video lessons to help you learn the major features.

To further help you learn all the features and understand the one you need for any given task, you can contact our technical support team via email or Excel Campus’s online support page.

What payment options do you accept?

You may pay with PayPal or any major credit card. Click any buy button on this page to be taken to a secure checkout page.

I want to get reimbursed by my employer. Can I get a receipt for the purchase?

Absolutely! A formal PDF receipt will be emailed to you immediately after you make your purchase.

Can I still send/share my Excel files with my co-workers after using the add-in’s features on them?

Yes, absolutely. Most features of the Hero Tools add-in are meant to enhance your productivity by creating and modifying your Excel files. This does NOT limit or restrict the use of the files by other users in any way.

Some features of Hero Tools, such as the Table of Contents, will add functionality to your workbooks. Those features can still be used by other users even if they do not have Hero Tools installed.

In order to use the Hero Tools features, your co-workers and other users of your files will need to purchase and install the add-in on their computer. Fortunately, we offer volume discounts to help equip your entire team with the time-saving features of HeroTools.

Do you offer volume discounts?

Yes, we offer discounts for multiple license purchases.  This is a great option if you want each member of your team to enjoy the time-saving benefits of Hero Tools.

Here is a page that lists our volume discount packages.  You can contact us from that page if you need a different quantity or have any questions.
