Easily Export Sparx EA data to Excel

Using eaDocX

eaDocX integrates with Excel to give you more options to review and manage your EA data - use our eaXL function to get an overview of your model in a spreadsheet.

eaDocX makes it easy to export your EA data into Excel.

 The resulting worksheet can be shared with your stakeholders directly or used as an efficient way to make bulk edits to your EA model.


Selecting data to export is simple. 

  • You can export all the contents of a package, 
    • or just a subset of element types and stereotypes.
  • You can export the contents of a diagram –
    • either the elements or the connectors.
  • You can export the results of an EA search.
  • You can export element instances
    • either all the instances in a package or
    • all the instances of an element.

And once you know what you’re exporting, you can tailor the fields included in the export – and eaXL presents a list of available fields.

These include all standard EA fields plus any tagged value fields that it finds in the data-set you’ve selected. Choose the ones that you want and then Export to Excel.

eaXL opens Excel inside EA*, and with the tight integration any package structure in the data you have exported will be reflected in the structure opened in Excel. You can expand and contract packages in Excel to hide some detail – useful when you have exported a large amount of data.


*although a ‘feature’ of recent releases of Excel means that the Excel window won’t dock inside EA any more and so must float wistfully around your desktop.
