ExcelToDataXml

ExcelToDataXml

The
ExcelToDataXml
document processor converts Microsoft Excel documents to XML.
The following table describes the properties of the
ExcelToDataXml
document processor:
Property
Description
enabled
Determines the content of the output. The
enabled
property has the following options:
  • Selected. The output contains raw data and formatted data.
  • Cleared. The output contains only formatted data.
Default is selected.
param1
Determines whether raw data appears in the output of the document processor when the raw data differs from the formatted data.
param1
is named
Display_raw_data_when_different
and has only one property,
enabled
.
The XML contains the data and the results of formulas that existed in the original Excel document. It does not preserve the formulas themselves, formatting information, or macro code. If you need to use macro code, use
ExcelToXml
rather than
ExcelToDataXml
.
The XML representation conforms to a subset of the
ExcelToXml.xsd
schema, which you can find in the
doc
subdirectory of the installation directory.
The processor output is in the UTF-8 encoding. If a transformation receives input from the processor, you must set the input encoding to UTF-8.
The processor supports Excel version 97 and later. It accesses its input directly, not through the Excel application. You do not need to install Excel on the computer. The processor supports both the XLS format and the XLSX format.
This component is implemented in Java and requires correct configuration of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE).
