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.This message has been edited. Last edited by: 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!

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:
Using the TABLE command extensively.
Using the JOIN command judiciously.
Maybe some MODIFY to create an output file - but not necessarily. A simple sequential file might be possible.
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.
Ricardo 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.

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.
