import all excel sheets

Hi,

I'd like to import an excel file which got many excel sheets. All excel sheets got the same data structur. But i don't know how many sheets are in the file. I think I need a command that imports all sheets.

Did anybody know a command like that?

Many Thanks.

Hi muncho,

that did not work, because with the Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 driver I have to insert an username and passwort. But I need it for XLS.

Now I've got another problem. The script only checks, how many sheets the first excel file got, but in the folder are a lot of excel files. Maybe the first file only got tewnty sheets and the second file got thirty sheet. Now only the first 20 charts are included in qlikview.

How could I edit this script for more files?

Many Thanks!

ODBC CONNECT TO [Excel-Dateien;DBQ=C:\Page\nm.xls];
tables:
SQLtables;

FOR i = 0 to NoOfRows('tables')-1
LET sheetName = purgeChar(peek('TABLE_NAME', i, 'tables'), chr(39));
UniqueUser:
LOAD @1 as Uhrzeit,
@2 as UU,
@3 as Datum,
Date(@3) as %KeyDatum,
FROM C:\Page\* (biff, no labels, table is [$(sheetName)]);
NEXT

You need to embed this script into another loops, which goes through all files. Filename then must be handed over into a variable. So script might be somehow:

FOR EACH vFile IN FILELIST ('YourDirectory\*.xls')
ODBC CONNECT TO [Excel-Dateien;DBQ=$(vFile)];
....
NEXT vFile[/coce]
