    CheckPoint add-in tool videos and limitations
    Checkpoint is a software designed for professional use, that can be applied in many sectors, especially in consulting firms and financial departments.
    It is programmed to detect and correct any miscalculations in the accounting tables. The main purpose is to offer an intuitive and efficient tool to control reports in order to avoid mistakes that can be difficult to detect at first glance.
    It is programmed to detect and correct any miscalculations in the accounting tables.
    The main purpose is to offer an intuitive and efficient tool to control reports in order to avoid mistakes that can be difficult to detect at first glance.

    The control is based on two checks:
    • The vertical sum of tables (including subtotals) and;
    • Cross-references between tables, also called "Check consistency".

    The function is simple:
    • Select the slides you want to check.
    • Select one of the two functions described: a window will appear indicating if you would like to review all the slides or just the ones selected.
    • After that selection a Pop-up window will appear indicating all the errors detected and you will be able to navigate easily through the tables to find and correct these mistakes.
    The Check Table function is to detect patterns from different columns and determinate if there is any error. Therefore, there may exist some limitations, since the algorythm will not detect some patterns in certain contexts.

    These limitations are generated when the check table does not detect nearby columns because:
    • A table contain one column.
    • A table contains two columns and both contain and error.
    The function will find a pattern and mark the tables asĀ correct if:
    • Contains a single calculation and is correct.
    • Contains multiple calculations and there is at least one correct.
    Check tables will mark as no pattern the tables that:
    • Contains a single calculation and is incorrect.
    • Contains multiple calculations and they are all incorrect.
    Please, we strongly recommend to display this videos for a major understanding about limitations related to the function:

    One Column

    Errors in both columns

    The Check Consistency function is to match titles (both in vertical or horizontal axes) and compares them in order to find any differences that may exist in between them.
    For a successful detection of any variance, the tittle of the tables MUST be the same. If not, the algorithm will detect them as non-related tables.

    Please, we strongly recommend to display this video describing limitations related to the function:
    CheckPoint Software first version is not able to detect errors in calculations with no sequence:
    Example: if A+B+C+D is composed of A+B and C+D Checkpoint Software won't review the correctness of this operation, otherwise will check the calculations of A+B and C+D CheckPoint cannot review non sequence calculations
