How to determine if a Excel file was created by Excel AD.
We can’t tell if a given Excel file was run or created by Excel AD.
Excel AD is a Excel AD Controller .xlxs workbook programmed by a Excel macro.
If a given Excel workbook/report is run by Excel AD then the Excel file running the report would be listed in a Excel AD Controller workbook.
Was this Excel File/Report Created by Excel AD?
Start by looking for a job in a scheduler with a likely sounding name. The scheduled job would run a script that executes the AD Controller.
The script run by the scheduler would execute a .xlsm file. Probably named DS_ExcelADController or DsBiReportList ending in .xlsm
Look on the controller tab for the report in question. For more see instructions at https://kb.dataself.com/ds/excel-ad
Or search the computer for a .xlsm file named DS_ExcelADController or DsBiReportList
