Import File / Appeon / .Net Assembly / LibXL

Greetings All,

I need to provide my users with the ability to import a file (spreadsheet) in my Appeon and process it in a datawindow.

In PB I have had good success using a Winform Target to be able to call LibXL.Net.DLL to open a spreadsheet and read and write to it using a PowerBuilder Winform Client.

And now I am wondering if that capability might exist in Appeon. The documentation says that I can use a Winform target, but states that I have to re-write my code and possibly use something called the AppeonDotNetComponent.

So before I go any further down the rabbit hole, does this sound at all feasible?

If so, can someone point me in the right direction?

If not, is there some other way to open a file in the Appeon Web Client and read the spreadsheet so I can import the data?

Thank you!!

    Hi Paul;

    As another alternative ... What about using a PB based Web Service to Read + Write to the Excel spreadsheet using the "LibX.Net.DLL"? The PB Web Service will run like a WebForms application ... A "kissing cousin" to the Winform application. Both of these generate C# BTW.

    Regards ... Chris
