Excel2Table Plugin

This plugin lets you easily render an excel spreadsheet in Foswiki.

How to use the Excel2Table-Plugin to import data from Excel to Foswiki automatically

This is a short tutorial, that shows how you can export content from Microsoft Excel or Open Office into a Foswiki document. Read tables from Excel-Files and use the content for chart creation or other possibilities easily.

Syntax Rules

  1. Upload an Excel spreadsheet to a topic. Make sure, that the digits are formatted as digits in the excel file.
  2. Use %EXCEL2TABLE{"example1"}% to show the contents of the first tab in the excel file.

Draft Please allow, that this topic is still a preview. I do not have the plugin file yet. But I will ask Sven to upload it here and finish the installation and usage description. As far as I know, this is a completely new version of ExcelImportExportPlugin, we would want to see, if the old plugin should coexist or be substituted. I will talk to Sven about that.
