    Importing Excel data

    dashingman

      Hi all,

       

      This may seem rudimentary, but I have a need to import data in Excel format in what may appear to be an X-Tab format.

       

      What I would like to acheive is a scenario where iOS devices can be updated as to current stock levels held in our warehouse, most probably via import on a daily basis over WiFi in our office.

       

      I am sure that there is a clever way to do this, but would greatly appreciate any input as to suggestions how best to go about this.

       

      I have attached a spreadsheet that shows the originating format, and shows Fabric and Style types in the 'x' axis and Size in the 'y' axis.

       

      Regards,

          Not to say it's impossible but if you plan on doing this daily, you might be better off changing things at the transmitting side. Otherwise you'll need to import into a temp table and have a script parse out each column in turn into separate records.
