We currently offer 16 free templates to help you automate CDXZipStream and reduce your learning curve to get up and running quickly. Templates are available for all CDXZipStream functions including geocoding, radius, routing, and distance calculations. Simply drop your data into the template and press a button to get your results. The templates are available for download at this link. They are available to both registered versions of CDXZipStream and demo users.
We've converted all of the templates to the .xlsm format so that they will be fully compatible with the latest versions of Excel and Windows 10. The templates will run in versions of Excel 2010 and later. All are digitally signed so they can be run in secure environments that require this. Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro language provides the automation that powers the templates. For more information on enabling macros in Excel please see the following article.
The templates are a more efficient way to deal with calculating long lists. Copying large groups of formulas in Excel can be quite cumbersome. Excel doesn't calculate formulas linearly and can appear to be "hung" even though calculations are proceeding in the background. The templates calculate in the order your data is entered and have an indicator showing progress to completion.
We urge you to take advantage of this free resource.
