How to Accelerate Microsoft Excel Workflows with FME

1,833

Published on

Discover how to quickly transform spreadsheet data without writing a line of code. You'll see how you can use FME to create an automated process for: moving data in and out of Microsoft Excel, integrating spreadsheets with spatial data, and performing data validation. Plus learn about the new functionality in FME's Excel reader and writer – which were both re-imagined and re-built in June 2013. Visit http://www.safe.com/webinars for a recording of this webinar.

No notes for slide
  • Points to make;Reading excel is easyCreating a workspace is easyIt’s easy to restructure the data to suit your requirements…
  • New excel reader/writer does not require Excel to be install. Available in 32 & 64 bit FME. Also available on LINUX (and soon the MAC)
  • Formatting:FormattingXLScells.fmw
  • Demos included with this slide set
  • Points to be made:Reading named rangesReading different tables from the same worksheetMerging data in interesting ways – full SQL Output to XLS or to “spatial data” – i.e. KML
  • XLS&SpatialData v01.fmwPoints to make:Convert X/Y to point dataMake spatial interactions with other spatial dataOutput to XLS or to a spatial format John Snow the first GIS and epidemiologist for the 1849 London Cholera epidemic – at the same time as Joseph Bazagette could have used a GIS to help him build the London Sewer system after the “Great Stink” of 1858 .Of course the cholera and sewers were related – but at the time they tought it was the sting (miasma) that was the cause of cholera rather than a bacteria carried in the sewage polluted water
  • Census data import & Pivot v01.fmwAttributePivoterLook at the parametersUsing a XLS template for outputSchema mapping may be tricky for more complex pivots
  • Points to make;Excel has size limits – depending on 64 or 32 bit OS and version of ExcelFME can summarize or split larger datasets or thin (query)Using an XLS template for chartsAlso we should talk about reformatting data – i.e. split string, reformat dates… TestFilter for redirecting data[DynamicPivot v01.fmw is a simple version of ChartTemplate v02.fmw]32 bit 15m/8m cell read/write limit
  • Points to make:Publish a workflow to FME ServerUpload or automatically generate reports
  • Update
  • Option 2 - Don’t use until September(first 2 links are currently being created)
