Print or Export

You can print or export EstateExec data, for your records or to share with other people (you can also grant online access to anyone you choose).

Inventory Report

The Inventory Report lists information about estate assets and debts. You may want this report for your own records, for a lawyer with whom you're working, or for working on submissions to a probate court. You can create the report from the "Estate Actions" dropdown in the top right of the Overview tab.

Report Options

You can choose from several options when generating the report:

  • Estate As Of: Choose whether to inventory the estate as of the date of death, or as it exists now
  • Only Probate items: Include only items subject to probate?
    (Hint: You can manually override which items are considered subject to probate)
  • Real Estate Addresses: Include any defined location address for real property assets?
  • Account Numbers: Include any defined item account numbers (see Account ID)?
  • Notes: Include any defined item notes?
  • New Page: Start each table on a new page?
  • Include Unused: Include tables even if they have no content?

Final Accounting Report

The Final Accounting Report documents the high-level financials of the estate settlement, summarizing initial estate inventory, changes to that inventory over time, estate income received, expenditures, and ultimately distributions. You may want to generate this report as you complete the settlement process, for your own records, and for working on final submissions to a probate court. You can create the report from the "Estate Actions" dropdown in the top right of the Overview tab.

Report Options

You can choose from several options when generating the report:

  • Label as "Final": Adds the word "Final" to the report to indicate that you are completely done
  • Only Probate items: Include only items subject to probate?
    (Hint: You can manually override which items are considered subject to probate)
  • Real Estate Addresses: Include any defined location address for real property assets?
  • Account Numbers: Include any defined item account numbers (see Account ID)?
  • Notes: Include any defined item notes?
  • New Page: Start each table on a new page?
  • Include Unused: Include tables even if they have no content?

Address Book

You can generate an Address Book containing contact information for the estate via the "Address Book PDF" button at the top right of the Contacts table on the Executor tab. You can choose to include various elements when generating an Address Book, including email addresses, general contact notes, and more.

Including Only Certain Entries

If desired, you can choose to include only a subset of your contacts in an Address Book, using one or both of the following methods:

  • Filter the contacts table to show just the entries you want to include, then press the "Address Book PDF" button to create the PDF
  • Or, select the entries you want to include via the checkmarks in the far left table column, then choose "Only Selected Contacts" in the Address Book Options dialog that appears when you press the "Address Book PDF" button

For example, if you just want to include Heirs, select "Heirs" in the Type field of the table header row, and then press the "Address Book PDF" button.

Estate Tables

If you want more details than the above reports provide, you can export any EstateExec table into a PDF document or a CSV file by selecting an export option (see below) from the menu in the top right of the table.

Example estate asset table PDF

If you exported a PDF document, it will open in a new tab from which you can print the document or download it to your computer (some browsers will instead simply automatically download the file).

If you exported a CSV (comma-separated values) file, a file named "download.csv" will automatically download to your computer, which you can then import into any program that accepts CSV files (such as Excel).

Table Export Options

There are 3 variants of each export option:

  • "Visible Data" — Exports all data currently in the table (as sorted), even if some rows are scrolled off-screen, but excludes any rows you have filtered out, or columns that you have hidden.
  • "Selected Data" — Same as "Visible Data", but uses the default sort order and only includes rows that have been selected (via the checkmark in the leftmost column).
  • "All Data" — Exports "all" data in the table in the default order, whether or not you have modified what visibly shows (but see Note below).

Note: All variants export only the data to which the browser table currently has access. If there are older items that reside only on the server, the "Include Older Items" button below the table will be active. If you want to export ALL data ever known to the system, repeatedly press the "Include Older Items" button, until it indicates that there are no more, then do the export.
