Quickly trace all dependents or precedents in Excel
Kutools for Excel
For instance, there are multiple formulas in a worksheet, and now if you want to display the relationships between the formulas, you need to trace the dependents or precedents in the sheet.
But Excel’s built-in Trace Precedents feature and Trace Dependents feature can only show arrows for one selected cell at a time. Even you waste time to trace precedents or dependents for many cells one by one, the overlapped arrows are not clear for trace. However, Kutools for Excel’s Monitor Precedents and Dependents utility can help you quickly automatically display all dependents and precedents in a selected range in real time with one click.

I have a summary page and it would be great to understand which cells are reliant on data being imported from other worksheets. Perhaps in this situation, the dashed line can have the arrow pointing the opposite direction (i.e. towards the cell rather than away from it)
