How to Install Statement Converter

In summary:

  1. Download the program file to your computer
  2. Add the program to Excel

This one-time procedure may be repeated if you ever need to re-install the program.

What You’ll Receive

When your order is received, I’ll prepare your converter and email the files to you. You’ll receive:

  • The program: StatementConverter.xla
  • Matching rules: Vendor_list_sample.xls

You’ll also receive the following files, but you may ignore them; they are provided only for consistency with the installation video:

SC_config_System.txt SC_config_XYZBank_sample.txt

Step 1: Save the .XLA file to your computer

Download StatementConverter.xla from your email and save it in Excel’s Add-in folder:

  • Excel 2016: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Root\Office16\Library
  • Excel 2013: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\Library
  • Excel 2010: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\Library
  • Excel 2007: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\Library
  • Earlier versions of Excel: any folder (suggestion: create a folder named Statement Converter)

Using Excel for Mac? Excel macros cannot handle long folder names. When naming folders for Statement Converter, use 25 characters or less. For example, use "Statement Converter" instead of "QuickBooks Statement Converter Program".

Installing on a network server?

Your network folders might need to be "Trusted Locations."

In Excel Options > Trust Center checkmark Allow Trusted Locations, as shown:
