After having had a great deal of success providing our Exact Forms Plus add-on for hundreds of customers we decided that the same functionality should be available using Excel. This has a lot of potential uses and we are very excited to share the news with the QuickBase user community. While Excel functionality is provided by native QuickBase, sometimes you need a little more in the way of custom generated predefined spreadsheets. For instance, you may have workbooks that have their own set of macros or predefined functions/calculations. Our Excel add-on gives you the ability to simply click a button, fill it with raw data from QuickBase and make the spreadsheet come to life. XL Docs can even be used as a low tech EDI (i.e. placing orders into a supplier’s predefined Excel order template).
Also, since our new add-on can create csv files (comma separated) and save the generated file directly in Dropbox, we have seen the possibility of clicking a button, loading a spreadsheet with information from QuickBase and allowing “QuickBase Sync” to automatically sync the CSV data into the desired connected table in the same or different application.
