Lotsoft is such a great program, but one of the more useful tools--being able to export data to Excel-- is a pain all over.

Has anyone found a work around the time it takes for this to export data to Excel form?  It appear that the P4 data can only be exported to a  data grid not to notepad as for the P3 data.

For not it takes so long--on my slower desktop I had to keep shutting down LotSoft because it appeared to be frozen.

Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

    What is the speed of your computer. That is what it is depending on. How much are you exporting. I had that problem also exporting my MICH 4 file, 8584 draws with vtracs & without vtracs. I just divided the file into 4 parts and exported and put them back together. Now if I just export a year, it is less than a minute.

     

    Hope it helps

      I had the prob on my old desktop and thought it was just comp speed.

      But I have the same prob on a comp with Pentium 1.73 dual core processor.

       

      I did break it down into year by year and less and it still takes a while. I would settle for a minute or 2 in a heartbeat.

        Every Lotsoft tool I wanted to export to Excel and other programs, I had Paurths program it for me.  For a fee of course.  The only problem I have are the missing leading zeros.  I know that's the easy way out but it works for me.
