Posting documents in SAP
– child’s play
xls2erp turns every Excel sheet into a SAP posting
template. Because we believe double entry
accounting should not mean you have to record
every document twice.
You know this: your employees enter travel and other
expenses in Excel spreadsheets. Only then does the
accounting department come into action. Accounting
has to check all the data and manually transfer this
to the SAP system. This means that all information
is processed at least twice. Often, the values in
accrual / deferral documents for rents, insurances,
allocations, royalty and management fee settlements
and the like are also calculated in Excel and then
posted manually in SAP. The whole thing just got
much easier. With xls2erp, the add-in for Excel that
transfers data from any Excel spreadsheet to your
SAP system. Childishly simple and at the touch of a
button. Record your data only once. Treat yourself
and your accounting team to xls2erp.
Each number is recorded
– once only
xls2erp makes it easy to record documents in every respect. An amount only has to be
entered or calculated in Excel once. Transfer
to the SAP system takes place automatically.
Taking an expense report as an example, the
process is as follows: In a first step, the employee
records his expenses in Excel. In familiar tables,
with known formulas, layouts and forms, in your
corporate design, with your fields and details.
You can also use your existing Excel files. So everything remains exactly as before – and
exactly as you need it. To enter the data, the
employee needs neither a SAP connection, nor
a SAP license.
Once the information has been entered, the employee sends the Excel spreadsheet, including all
attachments such as scanned original documents,
to the accounting department. In the next step,
accounting checks the record as usual and then –
with the simple touch of a button – loads it into
the SAP system. The attachments can be uploaded
at the same time. Done.
All information is posted correctly. Errors due to the
manual re-entering of data are a thing of the past.
The attachments can be linked directly to each
posting document in SAP. So the calculation of the
numbers is traceable at all times, and you can display the original documents directly from SAP.
xls2erp is so easy because you can do everything
in Excel. Quite simply, in the familiar environment
of Excel and with the familiar formulas, layouts
and forms. You can use all the functions of Excel –
there are no limits to your own solutions, from
“simple” to “sophisticated”.
Including the specialist department. Because, with
standard knowledge of Excel, it can design and
alter posting templates and forms. Limited IT
resources or expensive specialist knowledge
are no longer required. You can get started after just one day of training.
Because each number is only recorded once, there
are no longer any errors when transferring the data.
In addition, each source fi le can be automatically
stored in the system; this makes numbers traceable
and considerably simplifi es auditing and controlling.
The standard authorization check by SAP ensures
that only those who are allowed to post can do so.
Each posting has to be recorded only once. Laborious typing of numbers is no longer required. This saves accounting a lot of time. Using xls2erp can reduce monotonous, error-prone work – in current projects companies save up to 25 percent of working time.
xls2erp – childishly simple
and so versatile
Posting documents in SAP was never more coherent or
easy to use – yet so powerful.
The xls2erp add-in comes with its own ribbon. The functions are clearly arranged and easily accessible. In addition to the core posting functions, further tools
are available which facilitate the daily work routine, such as for downloading master data (chart of accounts, vendors, etc.) to Excel.
The function xls2sap()
With this function, every Excel
sheet becomes a posting
document. At the touch of a
button the formulas are read out and a posting document is generated from them.
Posting at the touch of a button
One click on the button “Post” and, after the standard checks have been carried out in SAP, the document that has just been created is posted. Errors are written to a separate log worksheet.
Example of usage
SAP becomes as easy as Excel – wherever and whenever you want
xls2erp allows you to model every conceivable
scenario. Imagination knows no bounds: Any
number you calculate in Excel can be recorded
You can use the formulas of xls2erp as
required anywhere in a new or existing Excel
spreadsheet. With no macros or programming
