No, because if there isn't an API available on the applications you're using, that would pose an issue. It also depends on the application that you want to link and how you want to link them.

A Programmer would still need details of the application and how they are going to be linked. Please provide me the applications and i'll take a look.

Regards

Alex

You won't be able to connect the API of all 3 into a single entity, API's only work when you're dealing with the same sort of data so you'd need an API to the website, an API to the mobile app, or the mobile app would have to connect to the same database, which means you'd need to have a full program developed for this, then the desktop app which would also have to link into the same database.

Likelihood is it's not going to be possible without specific details about the API.

We're friends here, no need to call me sir :-)

Right, so you want to connect the desktop software to excel, that could be a bit more possible, what's the backend of the software though. If it's an SQL database, you just need an excel specialist to connect to the database and run macro's to pull and format the data.

So it's not really an API at that point, it's a simple ODBC connection.

So for that is there a way  for that
I want to know that in any way can we connect excel to a desktop api based software  without knowing the api

The answer is no, there isn't, you will need to speak with the developer and ask them for the API details, if there is even an API for it.

No there isn't unfortunately, that's essentially what you need the API for in the first place.
