yes!

Just use Filters\Convert\Excel spreadsheets to text

Follow this with search/replace or add/remove columns to get just the data you want

Follow this with search/replace to convert CSV data into SQL (e.g. just Add a left margin

Code: Select all

  insert into tablename (col1,col2,...) values (
add right margin

Code: Select all

);


Then finally, add a Filters\Special\Database connection

The suggestion is not working for me...

My excel file contains eight columns. I have created the filter, but I doesn't appear to update the table. I was hoping to upload the filter, but I am getting a message that reads: The extension fll is not allowed.

My filter looks:
TextPipe Edition 9.9

Filter Title: S:\test\Excel2DB2.fll

| TextPipe uses 'filters' to perform changes to each file. This 'filter list' is a sequence of changes, like 3 different search and replace operations.
|
| You can add filters from the Filter menu above - Convert, Add, Remove, Unicode, Replace, Special, Maps, Email, Restrict.
|
| For:
| * Search/replace - look in the Replace Menu
| * Unix/DOS/Mainframe End-of-line conversion - look in the Convert Menu
| * Extract email addresses - look in the Email Menu
| * Remove HTML codes - look in the Remove Menu
| * Join (merge) files together - look in the Special Menu
| * Split files apart - look in the Special Menu
| * Join files and then sort them - add a Special Menu\Merge filter followed by a Special Menu\Sort filter
|
| Just click the menu item to add the filter to the list.
|
| You'll find many examples just by clicking File\Open, or you can use File\Search to locate a filter.
