Excel4apps Accelerates FSG Report Conversion for Oracle Users with Latest GL Wand Release

New FSG Converter helps organizations quickly transform Oracle reports into an easy-to-use Excel format

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Oracle OpenWorld -- Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based reporting and budgeting software for Oracle (Nasdaq: ORCL) users and member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork, today announced the release of GL Wand 3.90. The upgrade includes a feature for fast conversion of reports from Oracle's Financial Statement Generator (FSG) into a familiar Microsoft Excel format. Within minutes, GL Wand's FSG Converter transforms an Oracle FSG report into a formatted, refreshable and drillable Excel spreadsheet that accesses live financial data through GL Wand's tight integration with Oracle.

"The FSG Converter allows companies that have invested in customized FSG reports to convert them to Excel with minimal effort for future manipulation in GL Wand," said Chris Meyer, Director Americas for Excel4apps. "Because accountants and financial analysts are working with GL Wand's Excel front end, they can easily edit the former FSG reports without the need for SQL coding and other information technology support, enabling a more productive organization."

The FSG Converter feature quickly extracts and transfers Oracle FSG row and column set definitions into Excel. GL Wand's sophisticated drill-down capabilities allow users to view live Oracle data at the journal and sub-ledger levels, as well as see multiple transactions at once. This flexibility has improved productivity for users like Alliance Coal.

"GL Wand's FSG layout of Excel files is easy to work with and provides a great guideline for converting FSG reports, which now takes hours instead of days," said Steve Coop, Corporate Finance and Planning Manager for Alliance Coal. "For reporting and account reconciliations, we find GL Wand a must have tool."

Coop also commented on GL Wand's ability to convert complex reports, such as Alliance Coal's cash flow statement, which includes multiple budget-to actual comparisons.

"With the FSG Converter, we quickly converted the cash flow statement and released the report in just over one day," described Steve Coop. "Previously, we had to create SQL code to download row and column information and merge multiple cells using complicated Excel formulas - a time intensive process. We appreciate how Excel4apps continually adds new GL Wand functionality like the FSG Converter so we can spend time analyzing data rather than formatting it."
