Overview: Excel Table Input Plugin
With the Excel table input plugin it is possible to create forrest tables directly from Excel XML output. Excel sheets will be translated into sections, and each sheet will generate a table. Only simple tables are supported (by now). Formatting is not transferred to forrest but some calculations are.
Needs Excel 2003 to save the content as XML.
The How-to section describes step by step how to create and include an Excel table in forrest.
