Extracting data from Sage into Excel
You will recall that we initially met in 2008 during a Tameside Business Family seminar that you were delivering on how to use Microsoft Office more effectively.
Following that presentation, I asked you to visit our premises and advise us on a more efficient way for us to extract invoice sales data from our Sage system to send to our head office; at the time this was taking us a full day of senior management time to produce.
You very quickly produced an Excel spreadsheet that we continue to use to this day to provide this key management information; a task that now only takes 10 minutes to complete!
Since then, as our business has grown, you have continued to support us in the development of spreadsheets to use, allowing us to focus on actually running the business, rather than fighting with Excel!
Some of our customers also require us to provide detailed information for their records, again, your help and support in creating spreadsheets to provide this information in the format required has not only saved us time, but also helped us meet our customers’ requirements.
Since meeting you in 2008, it is fair to say that you will have saved us well in excess of 50 days of key management time; time that we have been able to devote to growing our business.
Thank you for your continued support.
