|Home > Infor/Geac/Comshare FDC > Excel Import Utility|
We have developed Excel utilities for customers to provide additional functionality which is missing from FDC. We have included the most popular utilities in a fully functional demo you can download. The utilities included in the demo are:

To extract the archive you must have WinZip installed on your computer.
If you do not have WinZip you can download it at http://www.winzip.com. To extract the
Utilities.zip archive and install the add-in:
Utilities.xlato a folder say
C:\Comshare\FDC\Utilities. The add-in can be stored anywhere but we think this is convenient place to keep it.
The add-in can be loaded by opening
Utilities.xla in FDC
C:\Comshare\FDC\Utilties\Utilities.xlaand click Open.
