Data replication without SOAP API



I am looking for a way to read data from our Salesforce data without the SOAP Api. As we are a small company , we don't have the license to access the soap api. It is a pity I know. I can export data to xls files, but this is not very convenient. Is there another way to do a data export? thanx.





One method, which you can only use once a week, is the "Data Export" function that zips up all your data each week:

Data Export lets you prepare a copy of all your data in salesforce.com. From this page you can start the export process manually or schedule it to run automatically. When an export is ready for download you will receive an email containing a link that allows you to download the file(s). The export files are also available on this page for 48 hours, after which time they are deleted.

Can you describe your requirements a bit better? For example, what are you going to do with your data once you have it, how often do you need to access it, what data do you need?
