Can they open an XML file coded for Excel, but without formatting and colors and such? If so, you may just have to have two files produced, one for the phones and one for desktops.
I haven't checked, but are there any perl modules that can convert an XML file to an .xls file This would require unix, but not any user intervention. -----Original Message----- From: u2-users-boun...@listserver.u2ug.org [mailto:u2-users-boun...@listserver.u2ug.org] On Behalf Of Israel, John R. Sent: Monday, February 06, 2012 4:40 PM To: 'U2 Users List' Subject: [U2] Building an Excel File We are running UniData on a UNIX platform. We create tab-delimited txt files (and tab delimited txt files with xls extensions) all the time that users open with Excel. Many of these jobs are run in the middle of the night or in a trigger program. In all cases, there is no direct user interaction building these files. We also have some XML files that are coded so that Excel opens them with formatting, colors, filters, etc. Unfortunately, our BB users and iPhone users can not open these files up in a meaningful way. Is there a way to build a TRUE Excel file without any user intervention from UniData or UNIX?
