Writeback to Opera 3

The Data Send facility in XRL allows you to take information prepared in Excel and write it back into Opera 3 Pegasus Business Cloud application.

Information such as Nominal Budgets, Price Lists and Stock Adjustments can be entered with minimal effort.



Pegasus XRL highlights

• Multiple Opera 3 database tables can be interrogated onto a single Excel worksheet 

• Cube Analysis for multi-dimensional reporting

• Dynamic write-back facility for Nominal budgets, price lists and stock


• Progressive drilldown from Excel to the live underlying Opera 3 transactions

• Access to data is controlled by Opera 3 security settings



Not only can you export data into Excel,
but you can also interrogate those fields
and drill down to the transactions behind
them. For example, a Turnover Value for a
customer can be interrogated to extract
invoice numbers and then further so that
you can see the stock items which make
up that invoice. The real power of this
would be seen if you were asked
to explain a value on a spreadsheet
such as “Total Debtors”: using drilldown
to investigate the transactions behind
the field, you would have an immediate



Reporting power

With XRL you can create links between

the data in Opera 3 and cells in a

spreadsheet so that you can produce

Management Reports such as P&L and

Balance Sheets in Excel, to present upto-

date, accurate information which is

based on the live data within Opera 3.

Further reporting power is provided by

multi-dimensional analysis tools such

as Cube Analysis and shortcuts to Excel

Pivot Tables.



Ease of use

Pegasus XRL appears as an additional

menu item in Excel. The XRL Wizard will

help you create reports by extracting

data into Excel. Simply select the

Company which you want to extract data

for, identify the area of the system you are

interested in (such as Sales, Stock,

Costing, Payroll, etc.) and choose the

fields. Any Excel user, regardless of

broader technical awareness, can quickly

learn how to use XRL Wizards to create

bespoke reports and analysis, often with

just a few mouse clicks. Plus, it’s all written

in simple English so that you don’t have

to work with technical jargon.
