CostXL - Excel Estimating Software

Combine the power of CostX with the features of Microsoft Excel®

CostXL is an Excel® add-in which allows Excel® to read CostX® data and live-link the data directly into its spreadsheets. Drag and drop measured dimensions from CostX® directly into the spreadsheet or set up a template so dimensions from your CostX® program automatically appear in your Excel® spreadsheet as they are measured. CostXL allows construction professionals to use Excel® more efficiently than ever before.

Why CostXL?

Many programs export data to Excel® but CostXL is different because the data is live-linked to CostX® itself. Whenever the CostX® data is changed the Excel® spreadsheet updates automatically! CostXL is an invaluable tool for any CostX® client who uses Excel® spreadsheets to work with construction data.


Ships with sample CostX® data and Excel® spreadsheets to get you going quickly.
