HoleBASE SI Extension for Microsoft Excel
Report Design and Security

Engineers love to re-engineer things.  By allowing them to design new Excel reports their creativity can flourish while security options will ensure your standard reports are not re-engineered for every project.

Easy to use Designer

Wish you could add additional reports to your existing system but unsure how to do it or if a training course is available or affordable?

No big learning curve, no unfamiliar terms – it’s just Excel.

Simply open a workbook and highlight which cells to fill for each data table to report, then press the Generate Icon to test it.  Adding grouping or filtering to any item is a single button press in the Extension Panel on the left hand side of the screen.

When you are ready to release your templates simply save it as a project template or to a configuration pack to provide it to multiple project at once.

Because the Extension uses standard Excel spreadsheets your existing knowledge of Excel allows you to quickly and easily create new reports.

Importing existing spreadsheets

Do you have existing spreadsheet templates you use with your existing system?  If so it won’t be long before HoleBASE SI automates the data within these sheets saving you time to streamline your operations even further.

The HoleBASE SI Extension for Microsoft Excel allows you to import existing workbooks and mark which sheets are to be left alone and which are to have data imported into them.

If you have geotechnical data spreadsheets solutions you already use in your organization then HoleBASE SI Extension for Microsoft Excel will allow you to significantly streamline their use within your organization.

Simply set up the tables and column headers as you would for a blank report and you are ready to test your new, improved, spreadsheets – it is as simple as that.


Excel and Engineers go well together.  Sometimes too well. Engineers love to tweak and improve things (especially Excel Spreadsheets) and using Excel to produce reports and calculations can be a Quality Assurance headache.

That is why we take security and unauthorised tweaking seriously in the Extension for Microsoft Excel.

Only users with the correct user rights can save a new report template to the system or modify an existing template. When the system is running in report mode the options available to each user are very simple and read only.

The HoleBASE SI Extension for Microsoft Excel allows users from all departments to access data safely, with less than 30 minutes training and without the fear of accidental Excel spreadsheet corruption.
