No project to small or large for our expert Excel VBA programming.

EMAGENIT works on custom Excel software projects of all size, difficulty, duration, and disciplines. Our Excel tool design covers the most basic of Excel tasks up to projects that can take a few months or years to develop. We develop simple Excel software apps like forms, dashboards, models, and reports that are formula driven and connect to things like databases, text files, and workbooks. On the full automation side, we develop Excel VBA apps that automate repetitive Excel tasks as well software covering advanced modeling, data processing, and dashboard style projects that incorporate databases, the web and even multiple computer languages. We have been creating custom Excel software since 1998 for companies and organizations like NASA, BMW, Caterpillar, Spectrum, The US Navy and Los Alamos. If you can dream it up, we will figure out a way to build it for you.

The Excel software apps above are two very common tool types we build for our customers. The first report app type usually processes downloads from things like QuickBooks, time card programs, and various banks, reconfigures the data, processes it, and then produces a report or reports in a new workbook. The second project app type usually rips through hundreds of workbooks automatically building the table and color coding project statuses based on the information that it reads.

Excel apps built and designed in the USA.

All of our Excel VBA programming is done by EMAGENIT personnel in the USA. We do not farm out our coding to any other company or individuals. In other words, your valuable information stays with only one source, us, and that means your proprietary information always remains secure and under a NDA. And since we are USA based, our work hours coincide with yours which means you do not have to call us at 11:00 PM at night.

Built in USA Excel Software Design

We use other programs, languages, and databases in our 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. By using Excel and VBA in combination with other languages and products, Excel tools can be rapidly developed that rival commercial software for a fraction of the cost; if you know how to build them. We do.

Other Programming Tools Used in Excel Software Design

Data Processing and Data Analytics Excel Software

Excel VBA allows these macro programs to be rapidly designed with minimum cost and time.

Microsoft Excel and VBA have the capability to process and analyze 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 tools we can build include:

Excel Software Design Data Processing

In the sample Excel software app 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 tools that EMAGENIT creates for its customers.

Data Fusion Excel Software

Excel VBA can be used to fuse workbook, text file and database data cheaply and seamlessly.

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, reports and dashboards. The data fusion Excel software we can build includes:

In the sample Excel software app above, Excel VBA is being used in a worksheet-based dashboard to fuse information being stored in an SQL database, workbooks and text file. An Excel VBA userform is used to display the 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 Mining, Data Formatting, Data Correction Excel Software

Excel VBA can be used to create data tools that can be rapidly reconfigured for changing data.

The condensed definition of data mining is defined as the process of detecting patterns in data. While this is a very broad field with many areas, Excel VBA and the worksheet shine at detecting patterns in data and then processing the data based on those patterns. It is the worksheet structure itself and its "built-in" tools that really makes it happen. In addition to data mining, Excel VBA can also be used to correct bad data and format report data in complex data configurations. The data tools we can build in this area includes:

In the sample Excel software app 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 reports from NetSuite, QuickBooks, Banks,...etc.

Report Generation Excel Software

Excel VBA can be used to build automated report tools that connect with Word, PowerPoint, Outlook...etc.

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, PivotTables, 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 for your data include:

In the sample Excel software app 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 is an unbelievably powerful report generation environment not easily matched.

Dashboards and Problem Visualization Excel Software

Excel VBA can be used to create cutting edge Excel dashboards and various other visualization tools.

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 cutting edge and extremely functional. What we can build for you to visualize your data includes:

In the sample Excel software app above, Excel VBA is being used to build charts on a worksheet measuring parameter performances from data stored in 1000+ workbooks (downloads). The user interface for the program is a userform that allows the user to select which parameters to chart and what type of charts to create. It also allows the user to select where charts will be saved and whether to email the dashboard report out automatically.

Project Management Excel Software

Excel VBA can be used to make project management tools affordably that automatically scale.

Microsoft Excel with VBA can be used to create cost effective program management tools that can be rapidly developed in minimal time and are scalable. 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:

Excel Software Design Dashboards

In the sample Excel software app above, Excel VBA is being used to build project schedules and figure out things like network days, periods, work days...etc. The user interface for the program has many parts including userforms and event driven features that run by interacting with the worksheet. Why not just use MS Project? Because many times not all of MS Project's features are needed and Excel's drawing shapes and worksheet cells coupled with VBA provide the capability to create interactive apps that surpass MS Project.

Database Integration Excel Software

Excel VBA can be used to integrate database information directly in your projects, no download files.

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 / 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:

In the sample Excel software app 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 and integrating multiple databases at once.

Scheduling and Time Management Excel Software

Excel VBA can be used to build robust scheduling and time management tools.

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:

All of the above can either interact with worksheet based data or data from a database.

In the sample Excel software app 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 union labor rules. A custom VBA userform is used to display a time-card sheet’s totals and who has overtime. EMAGENIT develops various time management programs for companies because many times the rules are so complex, available software cannot calculate it.

Workbook Correction Excel Software

Excel VBA can be used to sweep through 1000's of workbooks reading, correcting and checking them.

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 PivotTables...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.

In the sample Excel software app 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 so they can be rapidly fixed.

Powerful Modeling Excel Software

Excel formulas and Excel VBA can be used to create powerful modeling tools that can be used with Solver and incorporate other computer programming languages.

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, PivotTables, 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 PivotTables 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.

In the sample Excel software app 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). Solver is run to change the Design Variables, maximize the Objective Function value and ensure all the Constraints are met. UDF VBA functions are used to calculate various component performances.
