Incredibly flexible custom software design environment.

Microsoft Excel VBA is an incredibly flexible software development environment that saves you time and money on software projects and their upgrades. It is in our opinion, the premier environment to visualize data, integrate data, create reports, perform analysis and modeling tasks in. Using Excel and VBA in combination with other languages and products, app tools can be developed that rival anything on the market for a fraction of the cost if you know how to build them. We do.

Excel VBA Chart Report Software Design
> > > >
In the sample Excel tool above, Excel VBA is being used to create a chart dashboard report from multi-workbook based data, selected parameters and product. Excel VBA is used to launch a custom built userform that allows a user to select the time periods and parameters they wish to view in the dashboard.  When Build is pressed, the worksheet in the background is created. The report file can be saved automatically by VBA in the appropriate folder creating one if necessary and emailed to associates. This is a very simple example of the data tools that can be created in Excel rapidly and cheaply by EMAGENIT.

No project to small or large for our custom Excel software design.

EMAGENIT works on custom Excel software projects of all size, difficulty and duration. Our Excel app designs cover the most basic of tasks up to projects that can take a few months or years to develop. We can develop simple automation projects to the most advanced modeling, data processing and dashboard style projects you can think of. In addition to VBA, we also use formulas, functions, charts, data validation, conditional formatting, queries, logic... in our software.

Excel Formula Conditional Formatting Software Design
> > > >
In the sample Excel worksheet above, a schedule has been developed on a worksheet using Conditional Formatting, Data Validation and simple formulas that use worksheet functions. The app tool simply lets individuals know what they are doing on a certain day and week over a 2 week period. EMAGENIT develops tools in Excel from the very basic like that above to the most advanced using everything from formulas to advanced VBA.

Our custom Excel software design customers.

We have been creating custom Excel software apps since 1998 for companies and organizations like NASA, BMW, Caterpillar, Spectrum, The US Navy and Los Alamos. Our Excel app design covers topics in business, engineering and science

Excel VBA Project Status Software Design
> > > >
In the sample Excel app tool above, Excel VBA is being used to search through hundreds of workbooks looking for component part status. Excel VBA is then used to create a status table on a worksheet, keep its headers up to date and add new ones, log incoming data errors, and color the tables cells based upon their status. A floating VBA userform is used to create a toolbar for the tool that displays its program functions. EMAGENIT builds tools like this for many companies that have to keep track of statuses, but need the ease of its employees updating simple workbooks with those statuses.

Our Excel software apps are built in the USA by EMAGENIT.

All of our Excel apps are built by EMAGENIT personnel in the USA in our company. We do not farm out our coding to any other company. In other words, your valuable information stays with only one source, us, and that means your proprietary information always remains secure and NDA's apply.

Built in USA Excel Software Design

We use other programs, languages and databases in our custom Excel software design.

In addition to Excel and VBA, we also use other Office products like Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Access and Outlook in our Excel app tools. We can also integrate other computer languages, the web and databases into our Excel software designs to help get the job done. This is what sets us apart from other Excel software developers. It also allows us to do a lot of "how did they do that" type of things.

Other Programming Tools Used in Excel Software Design

Data processing made easy and cost effective.

Our custom Excel software design can do it.

Microsoft Excel and VBA have the capability to process data from all different types of data sources and data configurations. Using VBA along with the Excel worksheet, high powered data processing systems can be developed in minimum time and with minimum cost. The type of data processing tools we can build include:

Data Processing Excel Software Design
> > > >
In the sample Excel VBA tool above,  Excel VBA is being used to read downloaded workbooks by date; fuse pricing, description information and downloaded data in a new table in a new workbook; compute the sales; and create a Pivot Table for a final report. To build the report, the user clicks on the folder icons on the worksheet interface to set the data and report output folders. When Build Report is clicked, Excel VBA displays a custom userform that allows the date range of the report to be selected before building. This Excel tool is typical of the data processing tools that EMAGENIT creates for its customers.

Fuse workbook, text file and database data cheaply and seamlessly.

Our custom Excel software design can do it.

One of the biggest problems facing business today is that their data is spread out over multiple data sources that do not talk to each other. The solution is not to build another data source and try to import everything into which by the way never works out as billed. The better way is to integrate what you have and get it talking to each other. Excel VBA along with the worksheet again can be utilized to read and integrate data from different data sources that can then be used for various exports and dashboards. The data fusion tools we can build includes:

Data Fusion Excel Software Design
> > > >
In the sample Excel tool above, Excel VBA is being used in a worksheet based dashboard to fuse information being stored in an Access database, workbooks and text file. An Excel VBA userform is used to display a data source's status and path settings. The user selects the dashboard view via the drops downs and Excel VBA is used to populate and reformat the various data patterns as necessary. We usually suggest to our customers, maybe the best approach is not to build the mythical all in one data storage, but to work with what you have and pull the data sources together.

Data mine, format and correct your bad data, no problem.

Our custom Excel software apps rise to the challenge.

The condensed definition of data mining is defined as the process of detecting patterns in data using various methods. While this is a very broad field with many facets, Excel VBA and the worksheet shine at detecting patterns in data and then processing the data based on those patterns. It is the worksheet and its "built-in" attributes that really makes it happen. The data mining tools we can build in this area includes:

Excel VBA Data Mining Software Design
> > > >
In the sample Excel tool above, Excel VBA is being used to format, delete information and add formulas to a downloaded balance sheet. An Excel VBA userform is being used to run the format programs to allow ease of selection. The userform and Excel VBA code is stored in an Excel file called an add-in which can be opened in Excel invisibly thus making it look and feel like part of Excel. The tool is controlled from its own tab in the Excel Ribbon. Our customers often refer to these Excel tool types as "magic buttons" as they save precious time that is wasted when repeatedly formatting and modifying downloaded Excel reports.

Build automated reports fast, affordable and upgradeable.

Our custom Excel software design can do that.

Microsoft Excel coupled with VBA is an incredible report environment with the capabilities to make all different types of report formats. Using VBA along with charts, the worksheet, formulas, Pivot Tables, pictures and drawing shapes, your imagination is pretty much the limit of what report type can be generated. VBA can also be used to transfer data to a variety of other programs including Word, PowerPoint, Outlook... basically anything that VBA can command. The report types we can build to visualize your data include:

Excel VBA Automated Report Software Design
> > > >
In the sample Excel tool above, Excel VBA is being used to build charts on a worksheet  from multi-workbook stored data, then copying and pasting them into PowerPoint. The user interface for the Excel VBA program is based on a worksheet and allows the user to select the folder that stores the workbook data and the folder that stores the PowerPoint report template. It also allows the user to select what type of report is being generated and the date range to use. It cannot be overstated that using Excel VBA along with Word or PowerPoint makes an unbelievably powerful report generation environment that other tools cannot easily match.

Visualize your data and projects in Excel dashboards without going bankrupt.

Our custom Excel software design makes it easy.

Another area that Excel and VBA really shines at is dashboards and in general visual interfaces. The difference between EMAGENIT and other companies in this area is we make them look cool and extremely functional. What we can build for you to visualize your data includes:

Excel VBA Visualization Excel Software Design
> > > >
In the sample Excel tool above, Excel VBA is being used to calculate and visually display the layout geometry of a fighter wing on a worksheet, part of a conceptual aircraft design program. The user types the  wing parameters that shape the wing in the Wing Parameters area and clicks the Calculate & Draw button to draw it. The wing geometry values that are used to draw the wing are output below the parameters. Simple shapes are used to visualize the wing and are positioned in relation to the red dot. This example is just the tip of the iceberg of what Excel is capable of doing with shapes, your data and some imagination.

Make project management affordable and automatically scalable.

Our custom Excel software apps have that built in.

Microsoft Excel with VBA can be used to create cost effective program management tools that can be rapidly developed in minimal time. The tools can use either standard workbooks to house data or pull their data directly from databases. What we can build in this area includes:

What makes a system like this so flexible and easy to upgrade is when the database is taken out of the picture and replacing it with standardized workbooks housed on SharePoint. With the database out of the way, upgrade efforts focus on the visual displays and reports, not upgrading the databases, the queries,.... Adding project information becomes as simple as adding an extra row of data in a specified place in a workbook. We know, we have built systems like these that integrate hundreds of team workbooks and they consistently beat out the larger programs because of their flexibility and ease of use.

Excel VBA Project Management Software Design
> > > >
In the sample Excel tool above, Excel VBA is being used to draw and organize site/project shapes along a timeline on a worksheet. The project data is housed in multiple workbooks and collected and organized by Excel VBA. A VBA userform allows a user to select what sites to display and the date range to be applied. Once built, a user can click on a project icon and display only like projects or Site shape to see site project specifics. EMAGENIT regularly develops project management tools for companies when their current software does not cut it.

Integrate database information directly in your projects, no downloads.

Our custom Excel software design makes it happen.

Microsoft Excel VBA and VB.NET posses an incredible array of tools to query and control databases with. The idea is to use Excel as a pre and post database data processor. The idea is to also use Excel as a database visualization tool. We also use VB.NET at this point due to its extraordinary control of databases. Excel VBA can run VB.NET making it seamless to the user. What we can build in this area includes:

Excel VBA Database Software Design
> > > >
In the sample Excel tool above, Excel VBA is used to connect to an SQL database and pulls down sample hospital metrics. Shapes representing hospitals are drawn and positioned over the worksheet based map by Excel VBA and colored based upon whether Net Profit exceeds budget or Net Profit is abnormally high. Drop downs allow the user to select what metrics are being displayed. EMAGENIT has developed many Excel projects over the years that seamlessly integrate and display database data. Companies select the Excel / VBA combo because Excel is second to none at analyzing multiple database data streams at once. The projects are also easy to upgrade as in days, not months.

Adaptable scheduling and time management projects.

Our custom Excel software apps can do that.

Microsoft Excel and with VBA can be used to create interactive time sheet and scheduler type programs. The Excel worksheet takes center stage here again using its unique abilities for data storage and interfaces. What we can build includes:

Excel VBA Time Management Software Design
> > > >
In the sample Excel tool above, a user types employee time information into the worksheet interface and Excel VBA calculates the time break down placing hours in the appropriate column. A whole lot of VBA logic is used to determine over time, double time, triple time... depending upon labor union rules. A custom VBA userform is used to display time card totals and who has overtime. EMAGENIT develops various time management programs for companies because many times the rules are so complex, available software cannot easily calculate it or cannot calculate it.

Integrate your Excel projects with the web.

Our custom Excel software design makes it seamless.

Microsoft Excel, VBA and VB.NET can be used to read and control web pages and web based databases. VB.NET is especially valuable here with its built-in capabilities and again VBA can communicate with it seamlessly. What we can build in Excel VBA includes:

Excel VBA Web Integration Software Design
> > > >
In the sample Excel tool above, an Excel VBA program is downloading encrypted employee project data from an SQL database into a hidden worksheet and decrypting it. The dashboard on this worksheet is then used to display it. Interestingly enough, the chart on the left is not a chart at all but shapes and Conditional Formatting being used to color and hide cells. A custom VBA worksheet function is being used to organize its data. Drop downs are used to control what is displayed in the charts and the shapes are dynamically linked to cells and update automatically. EMAGENIT also builds web based dashboards to display Excel data and other data sources as well.

Sweep through workbooks reading, correcting and checking them.

Our custom Excel software design has the ability.

Using Excel VBA, automated programs can be developed that sweep, read and if necessary correct workbook elements, settings and many types of errors. These style programs can rip through thousands of workbooks housed in different folders monitoring them and keeping them up to specifications. If corrected, these changes might include correcting and reshaping tables, fixing and renaming names, redefining ranges, upgrading formulas, fixing queries, upgrading Pivot Tables...etc. When the programs are done, they can log their change results in worksheets complete with hyperlinks so you can jump to where the problem was located to see what was done. EMAGENIT has designed many of these programs to bring their clients workbooks up to a certain specification so Excel VBA software can then be designed to use them.

Excel VBA Mutli Workbook Software Design
> > > >
In the sample Excel tool above, Excel VBA is being used to scan 50 workbooks on SharePoint for region information and their projects and organize that data in a 2 week view on a calendar worksheet interface. While scanning the data, the program determines the health of each data workbook logging on a custom VBA userform which have not been updated, which have errors and which have a green update status. The errors are logged on a different worksheet with hyperlinks that lead back to the workbook with the errors. EMAGENIT has designed many programs like these for customers that scan, log and correct mistakes in a batch like format while displaying their data. Our record is fixing ~ 4,000 workbooks at once with table format errors.

Integrate workbooks, VBA code, databases, text files into a model with a pinch of Solver.

Our custom Excel software design already does that.

EMAGENIT considers modeling as anything that uses formulas on the worksheet to initiate its primary calculation sequence. There are so many model types, we can not possibly list them all here. What we will do instead is tell you what we generally use to build an Excel model. 

Excel components that you already use. When we develop Excel worksheet based models, we use general formulas, worksheet functions, array formulas, names, Excel tables, Power Query, Pivot Tables, shapes, charts, Conditional Formatting, Data Validation and ActiveX controls. We use formulas, array formulas and names because they calculate faster than trying to use Excel VBA for all model calculations. Using Power Query and Pivot Tables allows us to integrate multiple data sources in a model, refresh them and analyze their data. Using these basic features when possible also allows individuals with general Excel skills to manage a model's elements without our help.

Excel VBA to enhance model functionality. While models that use formulas and Excel's built-in capabilities are very powerful, a model's functionality can be boosted many times over by integrating Excel VBA with it. Think of VBA in this instance as a wrapper that manages a model's functionality. EMAGENIT uses Excel VBA to control things in a model like formula creation and fills, model parameter uploads and downloads, cell and range name management, formatting, range clearing, adding and deleting data from tables, data refresh and any type of model reporting. Also when numerical analysis comes into play, we use Excel VBA to create custom worksheet functions that perform those tasks. We also use custom worksheet functions to tie models into other computer languages for greater speed and other programs for "off the shelf" capabilities.

Solver for optimization purposes. We can also tie Excel models into various worksheet problem optimization packages like Crystal Ball and Solver. If you have a model and are trying to find a correct solution, you should be coupling it with an optimization program.

* A note here, user defined worksheet functions or UDF's are constructed in VBA and are executed from the worksheet like a normal worksheet function, think SUM function. They can execute 1000's of lines of computer code from a single cell and work with the like's of Solver or Crystal ball.

Excel VBA Model Software Design
> > > >
In the sample Excel worksheet above, you are seeing a worksheet that controls an entire jet drone model. The workbooks to the right house some of the major drone components. Changing the Design Variables section on this worksheet ripples to all the other workbooks, then their calculations are feed back here to determine range of the drone (Objective Function). The formulas in the Constraints section are built from all the workbook formula outputs and calculate the limits of the drone. Solver is run to change the Design Variables, maximize the Objective Function value and ensure all the Constraints are met. Why this problem you ask if you are in business? Because it uses a lot of awful math and shows what is possible.
