Topic: How to reload an excel spreadsheet after changes
Posted: Saturday, December 20, 2014 10:20:38 AM
You can always modify columns by clicking the "Select Range of Cells" button and either reloading then or manually extending the list

Topic: Dynamic table matrix

Yes, see under CALS/HTML tables

Topic: several XML docs to mySQL

When working with MapForce you do not need to think in XPath and XQuery terms - everything is covered by MapForce visual programming.

In order to source files dynamically, you simply need to provide an input to the File node, which will make its file name <dynamic> like in the screenshot below, where I generate the URL you've copied here based on the "now" function. You can also supply multiple input files this way - see documentation for details

Note: I've switched to the Built-In Execution Engine in this sample.

You would typically use Filter for such tasks.

Topic: MapForce saas

Depending on what you mean, this might already exist. You say "for producing the source via a rest interface" - with the help of Altova FlowForce, you can do practically this. I.e. mapping design remains on Windows, mapping execution - via HTTP

Typical case for FILTER. If speed is an issue, then SQL-WHERE could also help. See documentation and samples.

Look at the FileNamesAsParameters.mfd sample

What is your actual question? Did you try to simply generate XML Schema with XMLSpy?

Topic: not connect to server

This must be something simple. Contact Altova Support - they can help

Very difficult to understand what you mean based on description only. Can you show us the source data and how you want to see it in the output?
