I am new to this list. I hope the following can be a valuable
contribution to some of you.
I have attached an Excel2003 file for exporting data out of GC to Excel.
It works pretty easily - even for non-advanced users. I checked it for
Excel2003 having some new XML features now and I suspect it is
compatible with Excel2007 upwards. I did not check whether
OpenOffice-Calc provides such XML-features.
Once the data are exported from GC to Excel, they can be processed for
How to export data out of GC to Excel:
- save GC-file in the uncompressed mode
- open GC-export_en.xls (with Excel2003 upwards)
- Excel: Data > XML > Import > choose GC-file (I just guessed the
translation from German where it is "Daten > XML > Importieren > GX-file
... done: The sheets with the chart of accounts, transactions, clients,
tax, billing terms are filled !!! :-) Other categories can be added if
It is ok with me if the xls-file is used within the project or amended
or whatever. As additional features I could think of some macros for a
simple handling and setting formats for figures (still in text format as
"1600/100" instead of 16).
