UK Excel Developer conference, Wednesday 25th January 2012 London.

This one day event gathered together some of the top Experts of commercial Excel development from the US and Europe.The topic areas ranged from general high quality development processes to deep dive technical comparisons of C# v C++ for Excel development.

The program is here.

Bear in mind this is one of the few Excel community events, and one of the very best training events of the year. Not to mention a stunning opportunity to socialise with fellow Excel users and developers.

In other news our method of distributing our commercial products is about to change. Instead of maintaining an on line shop and going through a shopping cart process to pay and download, for a trial period we are making the downloads available on an honesty box basis. If you download a product and find it useful then go here and donate some money to help us continue to develop new products and support old ones.

If enough people honour the new system we will release more products on the same basis.

Things slowed down a bit at in 2011, due to several large, fully absorbing projects. 2012 will see a big step up in activity around the website and direct consulting.

The UK Excel Developer conference was held in London on Monday July the 12. The latest agenda is here.

This event is an excellent opportunity for anyone involved in developing in and around Excel to meet fellow professionals. The agenda is rich and varied, and there are plenty of networking opportunities. The event will be friendly and informal.

It is one of the very few, possibly the only, organised event targeting Excel Users/developers in the UK in 2010.

New page added explaining DDE links in Excel and where to get our simple server to try them out.

Two new sections have been added to the site to cover the areas of best practice in spreadsheet development and best practice in the use of VBA.

Spreadsheet Design Best Practice starts here.

VBA Best Practice starts here.

These are just guidelines, things we have found have worked well, rather than rigid LAWS that must be obeyed. Blind application of rigid rules is one surefire way to decrease project quality.

Simon is now (November 2009) offering direct, on-line, remote advice and support covering anything related to spreadsheets. Its on a Pay As You Go basis, hourly, full details here.

Simon recently (October 2009) spoke at the UK Excel User Conference at Microsoft London. Topic details and downloadable resources are available here.

A new Commercial Excel 2007 Add-in was recently released to ease the transition to the new interface. This add-in provides a compatibility mode so you can work with the familiar 1997/2000/2002/2003 menu structure whilst using all the new features of Excel 2007. More information and a free demo version available from the Excel 2007 Classic menu page.

Software Development

We develop and distribute a wide range of tools and applications primarily aimed at improving your productivity when working with Excel. Free tools are here, commercial ones here.

We can also develop custom components or applications directly for clients. This can be in any technology to suit your existing or desired environment.

We do both desktop/client and server development as well as full web site/web application development.

Spreadsheet Development

Codematic design and build spreadsheet based systems to address a diverse range of business issues. Financial analysis and reporting, scheduling, resource optimisation, process automation.

Clients have found our work valuable in a range of situations:

  • prototyping large systems to clarify requirements
  • short term tactical solutions whilst more comprehensive systems are under development
  • systems integration and data cleaning

With our broad technology background you can be assured you will be getting the most appropriate technology for the job, not 'a spreadsheet no matter what' that other less experienced providers offer.


Of course we fully support al the work we do, whether its commercial applications, or custom solutions. We also offer world class support for your existing Excel/VBA based applications. We remove the pain and risk of running unsupported or poorly supported mission critical spreadsheet based systems. Full time world class cover for a fraction of the cost of an average full time developer. We provide rapid turn around break/fix support, enhancement and migration services.
