Portable XLS generation is similar to PDF generation, but dealing with a spreadsheet offers some advantages: (1) Programs able to visualize basic XLS files are more widely installed than PDF viewers. (2) It's most faithful to the original, because it is still a spreadsheet. (3) Because it is spreadsheet, it allows greater editing flexibility if any changes or additions are necessary.

The EXE file can also be restarted automatically via VBA project to ask for elevation, making possible your VBA project start and work normally without administrator privileges, but with power to require elevation if necessary to execute some action or special feature
- The converted EXE file now accepts command line and passes entirely to your VBA project
- The EXE file can be closed and scheduled via VBA project to be reopened automatically after some time. In addition, a command line argument can be set to execute an action immediately and automatically after reopening.
