What The Exporter Will Do For You!
Can you sympathize with any of these scenarios?
What do all these scenarios have in common? They all require extra clicks of the mouse that can easily tack on anywhere from 15 minutes to a couple hours of manual work. After spending hours in front of the computer developing, updating, and triple checking Excel files, you then have to take the time to churn out "clean" files that tell a clear-cut story about its contents. What The Exporter template will do for you is automate the arduous task of converting your bulky Excel models, dashboards, and projects into lightweight, presentable, information only files. There are endless ways you can use this template to Export, Save, and Email your Excel spreadsheets!
This template is also designed from the ground up to be extremely versatile. This means it can handle any number of tabs or email addresses you require. Also, since this template uses an Excel spreadsheet, you can use Excel formulas to automatically generate custom file names, file paths, and email messages.

VIDEO: Let Me Walk You Through The Template
Why I Created This Template
I can't tell you how many Excel analysis files I currently manage on a monthly basis and have to shoot off to all sorts of different levels of management every single month. Between remembering who to send a specific file to and having to take the time to hardcode numbers, delete extraneous data, and remove unneeded tabs, I spend HOURS every month carrying out mind-numbing tasks. It got to a point where I had to figure out a solution that would save me from the frustration of putting together these repetitive reports and also prevent me from making mistakes (like sending a file to the wrong person). After countless hours of coding and testing, I finally found the solution to automate my processes The single template that I came up with has saved me an unimaginable amount of time and effort. I call it The Exporter.
