Can Excel access an OO file as external data? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

Is there any way to access the data within an OO file from Excel as an external data source - rather than having to export?

I have a requirements document in OO, with numerical columns (priorities, etc) that I'd like to be able to chart in Excel, whilst keeping the structure of an OO file. I guess I could create an 'OO export + Excel import' script environment, but I'm working quite iteratively, so just updating the query in Excel would be my preference.

Any help gratefully received


OO is stored in XML format but I don't believe Excel can parse it. I could be wrong, my Excel knowledge on this is lacking. Sorry.
Hi Derek,

Thanks for responding. It seems that the Mac version of Excel 2004 does not have the external XML data mapping functions found in the Windows 2003 version, so I'll need to find another work around for this.
