MS Excel to Smart Client Conversion

Converting an MS Excel spreadsheet to a .NET Smart Client application does not mean abandoning MS Excel. We know that users like to use their existing spreadsheets. As a matter of fact, using standardized MS Excel templates, Practical Computer Applications (PCA) can implement a process that gathers the data in MS Excel spreadsheets, imports the data into an MS .NET database application, and makes the data automatically available to everyone.

It can be done in the background with no worries about emails being sent across the Internet or loss of version control.

Specifically, once an Excel application has been converted from a spreadsheet to an MS .NET application, the data can still be imported, exported, viewed and analyzed in MS Excel. MS Excel templates can still be used to capture and import business data to and from third party systems.

Smart Clients and SQL Server mean that work flow, formulas, and data manipulation become much more well-structured within a database application that provides for consistent data entry, and generally easier, more straightforward user interfaces. Best of all, the data can be controlled in a secure way, and made available through role-based security over the Internet as a .NET Smart-Client application.
