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.

Can you import multiple rows comparing two or more companies? If so, that's good. My whole method of analysis was predicated on being able to look at two or more companies AND an average for the industry group, and that was all much easier to do by exporting a lot of data to Excel in "batch" and then using Excel to make (and graph) comparisons.
