Possibility to import enumerations from Excel

Postby obaer » Wed Nov 02, 2011 11:17 am

Hi,

i need to build up an enumeration field.
The enumeration should list ~1200 names and i don't want to enter these names manually.

Is there any possibility or extension with which i can import an Excel/txt file?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,
Oliver

Hi Oliver,

I don't have an out-of-the-box solution for you.

However configuration of the enumeration is a text file (it's XML).
So you can easily write a batch script, which prepend/append every line with XML tags, reading values from the text data.
You can write a small Excel macro to generate XML too

Best regards,
Nick
