Excelerator for Sage 200c

Most of us use Excel without even thinking about it. The optional Excelerator module allows you to harness this familiar versatility to edit Sage accounts data without compromising Excel functionality in any way, providing seamless integration from Excel to Sage 200c.

You can download data from Sage 200c into Excel, make changes to the data and upload it back to Sage 200c with a click of a button. Excelerator also validates the data to ensure it conforms to Sage’s financial rules, so you never need to worry about uploading invalid data.
