Firstly, kudos to avinashelite for giving us the below method to load the all excel files with the multiple sheets.
Loading Multiple Excel Sheets Dynamically along with file name and sheet name
Using above method we can load the multiple excel files with multiple sheets even though all the sheets have different names.
Above method works only in below scenarios
1) When all the files having the same number of sheets.
2) When all the sheets of excel files having the same number of Columns with same name.
But below method works even though you don't have same number of columns and sheets in excel and having blank sheet in excel.
// Define the Path
LET vExcelFilePath = 'D:\Test'; LET vQVDFilePath='D:\Test';
SUB CreateQVDFromAllExcelFiles(vPath) FOR EACH vFileExtension IN 'xlsx' FOR EACH vFile IN FILELIST(vPath & '\*.' & vFileExtension); ODBC CONNECT TO [Excel Files;DBQ=$(vFile)]; Temp: LOAD *; SQLtables; DISCONNECT; Data: LOAD * INLINE [ junk ]; FOR i = 0 TO NOOFROWS('Temp')-1 LET vSheetName = PURGECHAR(PURGECHAR(PEEK('TABLE_NAME', i, 'Temp'), CHR(39)), CHR(36)); CONCATENATE(Data) LOAD *, FILEBASENAME() AS FileName, '$(vSheetName)' AS Sheet_name FROM $(vFile)(ooxml, embedded labels, table is [$(vSheetName)]); NEXT i
DROP TABLE Temp; DROP FIELD junk; NEXT vFile NEXT vFileExtension Set ErrorMode=0; Drop Field A; // When there is blank sheet in excel file, field A is created Set ErrorMode=1; STORE Data into $(vQVDFilePath)\FullData.qvd; DROP Table Data; END SUB CALL CreateQVDFromAllExcelFiles('$(vExcelFilePath)'); LET i = Null();
Feel free to provide your suggestions
Thanks & Regards,
I am not sure it will work for print area or not. I think it should skip this sheet in loop but I am not sure
may be you can add this : ...where not WildMatch($(vSheetName),'*_xlnm#Print_Area');
If you can share the sample excel file I will look into that
Great work Kush and Avinash
can you use this method to load cross tables
I dont think so that this method is suited for cross table load. But you can use it to load the format as it is, then apply cross table on resident load
Hi Kushal, congrats!
It is very useful for me!
Thanks for sharing!
Great job, very useful code.. thanks for sharing
Hi i can't execute it it's throwing me the following
"Table not found
STORE Data into C:\FullData.qvd"
and then for the Drop Tables
Had the same issue...
What I found is you need to install the MS ODBC Driver for Access. Once I did that the problem went away.
