Importing to Record from Excel

Asked by: jforget1Solved by:

I am trying to get some script together which will allow the data from a spreadsheet to be imported into a form. I will have a spreadsheet where the Office ID is in the first column, I will have a record open in notes which will have the Office in a field on the form. I want the system to look through each row of the spreadsheet and pull in the data if it matches the office ID on the open record. The code below is close but it forces me to separate the data for each office into its own tab. On the form I will have a series of fields in a table that the data will fall into. Below is just a basic layout where Import 1a..b..c would be the data that has matched this office ID from columns A,B,C in the spreadsheet. Hopefully what I am asking for amkes sense, appreciate any assistance.

Import1a  Import 1b  Import 1c
Import2a  Import 2b  Import 2c
Import3a  Import 3b  Import 3c
Import4a  Import 4b  Import 4c
Import5a  Import 5b  Import 5c

"Three years back we had a client requirement for developing an asset tracking solution that required data acquisition from different data sources. I was assigned the role of DBA. With no practical experience in database administration, I was clueless on how to proceed. Thanks to the guidance and support of Experts Exchange's vast talent pool, I was able to complete the data integration process in less than a week's time, which saved our company more than $2000 worth of man-hours and got me a promotion!"

"My Staff and I use EE on a daily bases to solve all kinds of issues. One answer can be worth the cost of a lifetime membership! For example, we ran into a bunch of problems when migrating our Exchange environment from 2003 to 2010. We kept running into issues and repeatedly the best and most detailed info was coming from Experts Exchange. One of the last issues was getting active sync and OWA published correctly and the partners we were using were struggling for hours. Finally I decided to go look for my own answers and was able to find what was looking for on Experts Exchange. It was a life saver!"

"A few years back, I worked for a British bank in compliance. When the bank sold its trading department to an American company, the compliance systems had to change rapidly to avoid managers being charged with not submitting compliance reports to the government, which would have been a criminal offence. Experts Exchange helped me get the job done on time."
