Excel to Switch

Post by Karma » Mon Apr 15, 2019 11:36 am

hi all,

is it possible to intergrate excel with switch?

currently i'm trying to grab text from one of the column in excel to use as watermark for incoming pdf file using acrobat configurator + simple javascript.

thank you.

regards,
karma

Switch comes with MS Excel configurator, but it only allows you to save Excel documents to PDF, XPS and older Excel format.
What you require is ability to read the very content of the document, which can be achieved but not directly with the Excel configurator.
You would probably need to convert Excel to XML and pick up values from generated nodes for what you are intending to use them as.

This way you may be able to get the value to be used in your script for watermarking.
I hope this makes sense and is of any help.
