Customer Praise

“Fantastic Add-In. I'm having a great experience with it, I did some research and it's by far the easiest method for transferring data from Excel to Word. My company has some quite complicated Excel documents and I was able to name 141 cells of varying content and have them transfer over into a word template report.”

    Brian O.

"The embedded links from Microsoft are clunky and unreliable. Excel-to-Word has proved to be an excellent solution to lengthy financial reports that require Excel cells, ranges, and tables."

  James J.

“Fantastic is all I can say - this automation has changed my life. If you create content in Excel and then reports, letters in Word .... then just give it a try.... it will make you smile. Well done to the team at AnalysisPlace. The first time software made me smile... ever.”

  George B.

“This app is great for transferring Excel data into Word documents, which makes it easier to update monthly reports and financial reports when the numbers change.”

  Ian S.

“Great time saver. Easy to use. This was a lifesaver. After a little time investment, I'm banging out great looking customized proposals with ease.”

  Scott B.

“It saves me at least half an hour per week on writing sales reports as it transforms all the tables and numbers properly.”

  Bojan M.
