Budgeting with Excel Workbooks: Can’t Live With Them – Can’t Live Without Them

Excel…. When it comes to spreadsheets, it’s the only game in town. For basic formatting, calculations, and the rare chart or two, it has all the functionality most users need. However, those who regularly use advanced features to create Excel workbooks understand the program’s limitations.

The hair pulling starts when you have to repetitively perform virtually the same formatting and analysis steps on new data for the same fields and continues when you discover that there is virtually no re-usability for the work you perform in Excel. Each time, it’s almost like starting from scratch.

But what if there were products that could streamline the creation of workbooks, so that what usually takes hours could be accomplished in mere minutes? Imagine a world where you could format data on an ad hoc basis or new data for the same fields on a repetitive basis in a way that would create formatted worksheets, a PivotTable, and a PivotChart utilizing more Excel formatting and analysis features than you could ever implement manually? It would be a world of sheer bliss.

Ledgerbase transforms Excel from a cumbersome necessity into a fast, powerful, easy-to-use report writer for Budgeting data collection and consolidation. By automating Excel’s most frequently used features, it completely eliminates repetitive, mechanical, and time-consuming manual formatting tasks. The best part of all is that the program never touches the original data, whether it’s manually maintained Excel data, data extracted from databases, or data imported into Excel from other applications.
