[SOLVED] Load Multiple Excel into WF table
Hi Team,
I have a requirement for automation process. Need to read around 6 excel\csv files from particular path(local or FTP) and load the data in single table. based on that table need to create a report. this is daily process. Every day morning some one place the excel\csv in path.

below are details process flow.
Step 1: Read the Excel\CSV files from particular path.
Step 2: Filter the data based on conditions.
Step 3: Join the filtered data to another table and load the final data in server.
Step 4: Create a excel report based on above table. (Report can be created using Developer studio)
Step 5: Send the Excel output to group of user thru Email. ( we can schedule report in report caster)

Need to automate first 3 steps.(like MS SSIS package)
How to achieve this process using WF\Data Migrator.

Please help me on this.

Hi Maran,

You will need some advance coding to reach your goals.
I will try to resume it.

1: Create metadata to your CSV;

2: TABLE FILE them and filter as you wish then create HOLDs to specific tables;

3: JOIN HOLD with other tables you need then use MOFIDY to load final data to other data source you want;

4: Create your final report using Dev Studio/APP Studio/Info Assist or any text editor;

5: Schedule it using report caster and enjoy!

Good lucky!

Maran,
What is the reason for automating the first 3 steps only? Is there some more manipulation to be done before Report Caster kicks in?
In any case, as Ricardo has pointed out, there is lots of WebFOCUS involved:

Did you get training for all this?

The first 3 steps can be automated using 'Data Migrator' ETL tool similar to SSIS. It uses the same FOCUS code as WebFocus but it has a GUI (through Data Management console) to extract, transform and load with out writing the Focus code

If its a single report, WebFOCUS/APP Studio can handle that!

Thanks for all your replies.

Yes, It's a single report. So i used FILEDEF in WF to load the CSV files and created the report successfully.
Thanks for your help. Smiler

Thanks Ravi.
I don't have knowledge on Data Migrator ETL. Iam searching for training materials. Can you share any tutorial/training document for Data Migrator.

Data Migrator is the ETL tool from IBI. Here is overview
http://www.informationbuilders.../dataintegration/etl
It uses large suite of data adapters to connect the data sources, map them to target and load. You can see more detailed technical documentation here.
