Note on the CALC4XL update
Updating CALC4XL without first uninstalling a previous version is only possible if the compatibility number has not changed.

Further changes

Performance improvements of the CALC4XL Super-BOM

Opening and running the CALC4XL Super-BOM could be very slow in certain cases. Measures have been taken here to accelerate these actions.

Note:

If the CALC4XL modules only open slowly, then it is usually because the central database is connected with poor bandwidth => connect locally and synchronize regularly via CALC4XL-> database actions -> copy your own data

General optimizations

- Fixed minor bugs when copying, moving, deleting in the Super BOM and the dropdown visualization (dropdowns were sometimes displayed incorrectly in the Super BOM).

- General stability improvements

New functions CALC4XL version 2.0.25.9 with CO2 licence

New CALC4XL module: CO2-Emission logistic calculator

The first version of the brand new CO2e transport calculator has been released.

You can calculate the CO2-Emission in order to different types of packaging and transportation.

The logistics calculator can be linked to any Excel cell from Cost Breakdown, Super-BOM or your individual calculation template.

 

Select the Excel cell in which the CO2 value for packaging and transport should be output. Clicking on the right mouse button opens the context menu. Select the C4XL: Logistics CO2e function. The CALC4XL logistics calculator opens. Now you can calculate the CO2 emissions for the corresponding packaging and transport types. This calculation is linked to the selected Excel cell.

You can repeat this process on each Excel cell to calculate additional CO2 values for packaging and transport types.

Please note that the CO2 values for transport usually change depending on the location.

Start logistics calculator CO2e

You can calculate the CO2 emission for logistic after connecting the CO2e logistic calculator with an excel cell.
