How to connect the microsoft excel files to my app?
Use the API connector and Google sheets api
Zapier plugin they have a Zap for that
@levon has a Sheetu plugin
The zapier zap requires the excel file to be on a OneDrive business account unfortunately. And the other two solutions you mentioned are for Google Sheets.
Does anyone know if there is a way to allow a user to upload an excel file and read that data into a Bubble database?
Why not save the file as a .csv and upload it directly into Bubble? You can do this either via workflow (100 rows max) as a user or via the Bubble Editor (App Data) via admin, which does not have size restrictions.
Will give this a try, thanks! I was also just reading about Apachi POI which I guess is an API for reading excel documents. Any idea if the Bubble API connector would be able to connect to this?
It says it supports Java 6, but doesn’t mention anything about json/xml/etc. You’ll have to read through their documentation, but it doesn’t look like it.
That Sheetsu plugin is not for the newbie. Instructions, if that’s what you want to call them, make no sense. They’re written for those that are already programmers.
