Topic: XML to Excel- variable number of columns
Posted: Wednesday, June 23, 2021 2:09:35 PM
Hello everybody

I'm new to Altova Mapforce, and I'm trying to map an xml file to excel.
The problem I'm facing is that I have a number of statusses, which need to map onto columns in the excel file.
However, not every customer uses the same statusses, so the number of columns and the column headers should be dynamic, depending on the customer.
Unfortunately, it seems like I have to define a column range in advance, and add the column header, but there is no way of conditionally adding the column to the excel output or not.

Is there any way that this would be possible, so that I can output the right columns (and only those columns) to the excel file, depending on a customer id?

Thanks in advance!
