The best way to learn about Data Desk/XL Pro is to try it for yourself with your own spreadsheet data. Download the software appropriate for your computer system (Windows 2000/XP/Vista, Mac OS X) and install it in Excel like you would any other Excel Add-In.

You have 15 days to use Data Desk/XL without any restrictions in functionality whatsoever. At the end of 15 days the program will no longer work without an Activation Key. At any time before or after the 15 day trial period expires you can contact Data Description to purchase an Activation Key. The Activation Key converts the software from a trial copy to a fully-functional professional copy. Order an Activation Key with our online order form or by calling our sales department at 607-257-1000.
