Feed PhraseExpander with Excel
PhraseExpander can extract the data you have stored in Excel (or any CSV file) and build a glossary from it.
It can also create a link to it, so when data changes, phrases are automatically updated.
This will work like a floating database you can query in any application.
For example, you can use this to enter a product code by typing its name.
