Excel to SIE4

This is my solution to create a SIE file from an Excel file. If you instead want to convert a SIE file to a structured format in Excel, check out this page instead.

RocketSIE is a free to use Excel VBA macro to convert an Excel file to a SIE4 file (a sort of text file with “.SI” as filename extension) that you can import to your accounting software released under a MIT license. The macro offers you a very simple way to create your SIE4 files for free. Usually these kind of solutions have a yearly fee of several thousand SEK.

You can use the tool in different ways depending on your needs. Maybe you want to streamline the bookkeeping work by creating all journal entries in Excel and import a batch of journal entries (i.e. a SIE file) to your accounting software instead of creating each journal entry manually in the accounting software.

The tool supports journal entries (Sw: “Verifikationer”), opening balances (Sw: “Ingående balanser”), dimensions/objects (e.g. projects, cost centres, cost bearer etc.) and monthly budget.  Refer to the images below for some screenshots.

In 2022, Microsoft changed the default behavior of Office applications to block macros in files from the internet. Please read my blog post on how to solve it.
