Import Excel OneDrive

Recommended Posts


I'm quite new on Spotfire, and I'm trying to import an Excel file which is on a shared folder in OneDrive. Apparently there's no way to connect Spotfire to OneDrive, so which sould be the best option to import this file

Also, this file is modified on a daily basis, so I'd like to know if Sporfire will automatically update the info when I change it on the Excel file

Thank you very much for your help

The most elegant way to connect to files on OneDrive is using TIBCO Data Virtualization (TDV). TDV allows you to get real time access to300+ different types of data sources (one of which is OneDrive). Spotfire has a native connector to TDV. The nice thing about TDV is that you will establish a live connection to the underlying data source by default. This means that you get updated data when you build a dashboard in Spotfire.

To learn more please check out this page:https://www.tibco.com/data-virtualization


You could try TDV on AWS (https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/prodview-kdfqlzdk243qo).

Another option would be to use a data fuction.This would require you to customize a python script and embed it in a Spotfire Data Function. For example this:https://github.com/OneDrive/onedrive-sdk-python

I should warn youthat creating Data Functionsis a bit more of an advanced topic. Still if you'd like to learn more I can recommend this resource:https://community.spotfire.com/wiki/python-data-functions-tibco-spotfire

Best of luck!
