Brilliant - this is really simple to use, has a very quick return of data and flexible. For a small UK business, our internal reporting can be quite complex, so there was no option for me to even start this in Xero, so I reviewed apps. Scott's Add-ins won hands down. Was up and running really quickly and received great support direct form Scott.

We use the app for consolidated reporting of several companies and thousands of tracking codes. A neat and lean tool that works perfectly and much better than other tools that promise more and keep less. Also received great support from Scott to get started.

Great add-in, within a few hours (mostly spent ensuring I have the correct references in Xero's Chart of Accounts) we have managed to pull all our P&L data into Excel. This saves at least an hour or so of work every month to do this manually, and ensuring the historic data in Excel are automatically update when there are adjustments made in Xero is invaluable. So far have been using the XGL function for pulling P&L data, and XDESC to sanity check that I have pulled through the right item from the Chart of Accounts. Given the simplicity will also look at the other functions to pull in the balance sheet items also.
