It is difficult to create Excel spreadsheets in a program. Most people just offer CSV files. But CSVs have many problems. Many people would love to offer Excel files downloads of data, but don't have the resources to do so.

Your users import your CSV data into Excel anyway. Save them a cumbersome and error-prone step. They will be grateful.
Each day you download a CSV file from your ERP system. You open it in Excel, fix the mangled dates, and replace any garbled international characters you can find. Next, you discard 14 columns that you don't need, and format the remaining 23 to look presentable. You add a few more columns containing formulas, and a footer that summarizes the data. After 20 minutes, you email this report to your boss. What a waste of time!
With GoodGrids, you can automate this repetitious process. Just upload an example Excel file, formatted like you want your resulting report to look like. Add formulas and a summary footer. Then, just upload the CSV file every day, and you will get a properly formatted Excel file, containing just the columns you want. Read MoreGet Started!
