Let's be honest. Your business probably relies on thousands of Excel spreadsheets that were created by employees long departed and modified by others many, many times.

Imagine having to validate all of them.

This report details the best practices you need to create a spreadsheet validation plan, including:

  • How to determine which spreadsheets actually need to be validated to comply with the FDA
  • How to maintain control of your data in the cloud
  • How to incorporate a validation plan into your traditional QA processes
  • How to create test scripts to validate your spreadsheets
  • How to plan, manage and resource an effective project and not see scope creep

And as a bonus, we’ve also included two white papers on spreadsheet design, verification and validation, and use and storage in single- and multiple-user environments. Written by the FDA’s own Dennis Cantellops, the quality assurance manager of the San Juan, Puerto Rico District FDA Office, these papers tell you exactly how the FDA handles its own spreadsheets, so you'll know what it expects you to do with yours.
