Sage tx's to excel

Mal Registered Posts: 13 Regular contributor ⭐ ? ⭐
I work for a charity and I need to transfer my Sage (Accounts 50) expense transactions to excel in order to apportion them to Fundraising/Awareness/Governance etc.
I have used the Financial Reports route (Company/Financial Reports/Transaction CSV) as well as listing them in a window and the sending them to Excel (File/Office Integration/Send contents to excel).
Each time, I get a file with merged cells, split cells and it makes it extremnely difficult to use.

Grateful for any tips on the best route to achieve this.

    when you open the document in excel, does it give you the options to change the column width etc. i always go through by pressing next, rather than just ok. i import files into excel using csv all the time

    sorry if i am pointing you in the wrong direction.

    Do you not have sage integrated reporting in Excel? It should be a toolbar.

    After running a report, I choose export and save as a standard CSV file. Ends up all neetly lined up.

    Should be able to do this without integrated reporting.

    Another option, you could use the "departments" to record whether a transaction is; Fundraising/Awareness/Governance.

    Then run departmental reports, we used to records projects like that.
