WilComm | Excel Spreadsheet Builder

Supplier: Wilkinson Electronic Document Solutions

The WilComm Excel Spreadsheet Builder - an optional software add-on for WilComm - enables business reports to be created in native Excel format from both iSeries (AS/400) spool files and MS Windows print jobs, using all the features commonly available in Excel.


These include cell formatting, formulae, graphs and pivot tables. Once distributed, the report data can be further manipulated in Excel to provide more in-depth analysis as required.


  • Saves the time-wasting transcription of financial data from printed reports into spreadsheets
  • Ensures accuracy by avoiding the transcription errors that often occur when manually typing figures from a printed report
  • Enables distribution of concise, analytical reports to key business stakeholders e.g. summary graphs and tables rather than multi-page printed reports
  • Distribution in Excel spreadsheet format allows further manipulation of data if required
  • Double byte character set capability allows creation of reports in Chinese, Japanese and Korean languages
  • Integration with WilComm document output management suite ensures full automation and production of Excel files in just a few seconds

Key Features

  • Automatically creates Excel reports from iSeries (AS/400) spool files and MS Windows print jobs

  • Includes or removes fields and lines based on simple rules e.g. do/do not contain certain values; remove sub-totals; avoid blank lines

  • Repositions negative symbols (CR or -) to conform with Excel
