Electronic Submission System Based On Excel

The EDSS (EXCEL) uses MS EXCEL and provides an easier method for updating the "Fill Requirements and Surplus" data form.


The EDSS (EXCEL) is an EXCEL file containing all project data in the Fill Management Database. Customised programs have been developed for retrieving current projects in the database, duplicating project data forms for revision and sorting projects list by Works Departments and project status.


The EXCEL file contains customised VBA programming code. When it is opened, a warning message will appear stating that this file contains Macros/VBA. It should be safe to open the EXCEL file. However, it is always a good practice to scan any file downloaded from the Internet with an anti-virus program.


Basic requirement is system with Microsoft EXCEL 97 or later installed.
