Use Excel as a calculator! You may even use the power of Excel to perform calculations and update one or more of the current contact fields with the result of the calculation. Let’s say you want to add User1 and User2 and put the total in User3. You could export User1 and User2 to Excel, have Excel calculate the sum and return it to the User3 field.

How is it different from Advanced Excel Templates? Advanced Excel Templates exports data from either the Contact table or the Company table or the Group table or the Opportunity table but cannot combine data from 2 tables (a workaround could be to use Copy Data Between Records). Excel Quote-Invoice Maker is designed to export Contact + Opportunity or Company + Opportunity or Group + Opportunity data to Excel. As a consequence, another difference is that Advanced Excel Templates has the ability to export more than one record at a time (for instance you can create 10 documents with data from 10 different contacts at once), but not Excel Quote-Invoice Maker (you can create a quote or invoice with multiple opportunities and products but not multiple quotes or invoices at once). NOTE: Requires Excel 2000 or higher. Compatible with Office 2007 and 2010.
