Here is the text of a press release I sent out this morning!
COLUMBUS, OHIO – June 3, 2008: Data Dynamics today announced the new Excel transformation extension for Data Dynamics Reports enabling report readers and developers to output report data into the familiar Excel spreadsheet format.
“The Excel technology we have introduced into Data Dynamics Reports is very flexible,” said James Johnson, Product Manager for Data Dynamics Reports. “Thanks to the transformation technology we have developed, customers can export reports verbatim into Excel. Users also have the option to create their own templates to create an Excel spreadsheet that doesn’t resemble the original report at all. I look forward to seeing how this functionality gets used.”
Transformation extensions start with the report data and using a user defined or generated template it transforms that data into a spreadsheet. The output spreadsheet takes complete advantage of spreadsheet power including formulas, charts and pivot tables. There are no limits to this technology and it represents a departure from export filters that are based on report layout. The Excel functionality is currently in beta and is available in the latest release of Data Dynamics Reports, available at http://www.datadynamics.com.
