Once you've exported...

I used to do that. The stuff I'm working on wouldn't require the data to be exported first. The databases could be opened directly in EXCEL, or a row of data for a given company could be imported directly into EXCEL, or even an individual data field. For example, something like:

=sipGetData("MMM", "EPS_EG5")

To get the estimate of 5-year projected EPS growth for ticker symbol MMM out of the SI Pro databases.
