I am trying to load a Excel xls file into the Seal Server Manager.

This file has "Call Detail Records" from a phone system.

That seems to work.

There are no errors connecting to the Excel file.

But I can't see the data.

Is there something special to load all the data?
Columns go from A to AG.
Row 1 is the name of the column
Row 2 is the first of the data
Row 43422 is the last of the data

Do I have to do something with the Definition Script?
Do I have to do something with the Load Script?

New to Seal Report.
Trying to figure things out.

You do not need to create a No SQL DataSource to query an Excel Sheet...
I just made a quick try on \Databases\databank.worldbank.org_health_population.xlsx
Create a new Data Source
  • In the connection, use the Helper Create Connection from Excel or MS Access
  • Then you can Add Table from Catalog... it should see the Data Sheet
  • Then in your model, you can query our new elements.

Note that you need 32bit Excel Drivers on your machine
Provider=MSDASQL.1;Extended Properties="DBQ=%SEALREPOSITORY%\Databases\databank.worldbank.org_health_population.xlsx;Driver={Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls, *.xlsx, *.xlsm, *.xlsb)};"

If you want to continue using No SQL Source (which is another option), you should put some debug messages to understand what is going wrong in your load...

Hey guys,

Few months before even I also don’t have any idea that I can create database in Excel spreadsheet. But After searching information about it, I have successfully been able to Transform My Excel Sheet As Database. So, now I can tell you how to create database in Excel simply and easily.
