I'm using 'Import excel to database' smart service in the process. When I run the process, it executes successfully, but does not write anything to database table. Does anyone have suggestions?
Hi Ashok, I faced this issue too. The problem is with the excel template. The solution that worked for me was, I exported the table as CSV for Excel from database.(The table where you want to dump data). And then convert this CSV to excel, then use this template to upload data, things should work fine for sure. Also remember to separate the comma separated values to row 1 of excel - column headers. Try and let me know if you have questions !
I have the similar requirement to import excel data to database.
I am using the "Import Excel to Database" smart service and doing the same what you suggested above. But i am getting an error "???Unknown column '' in 'field list'???". I did check in logs its taking one null column and values at the time of insertion(log data is below). Any idea what could cause this error?
'insert into `MyTable` (`ID`, `EID`, `Name`, `Notes`, `Region`, ``) values (\'2\', \'123\', \'xyz\', \'fhdf\', \'ghsdf\', \'\')',1054
Hi sujithap951Can you open the excel file and check for the last field if it contains the empty string?
Please refer to this thread: https://community.appian.com/discussions/f/integrations/14268/import-excel-to-database
Trick is the to remove the last column in your excel file and use it under "New Columns" with it's value under "New Column Values".
For example, in my CDT, the last column is always "isActive". Now when I would want to import Excel to database, I will not include "isActive" column on excel file, rather, I will input "IsActive" as Value under 'New Columns' and "1" as value under 'New Column Values'.
Following the pointers/field guide that mohamedt808 provided earlier, as inputs for 'New Column' and 'New Column Values', you should be able to import data.
As sandeepr373 mentioned, these were supposed to be optional fields, however, the node fails if they aren't populated, for some reason.
Keeping rest of the parameters as desired, the node should pass. It worked for me considering below:
