Importing From an EXCEL Worksheet

We are looking to migrate models from a different legacy tool into SAP PowerDesigner via EXCEL Worksheets. I have found some information associated with this topic, but nothing "Solid". Is there a document that discusses the Import EXCEL worksheet? One issue I am seeing is that the Comment column for an "Entity" worksheet does't get uploaded, the Entity name does, but not the "Comment" EXCEL worksheet tab.

Thanks in advance, /mike

    I haven't had any problems importing Comments from Excel, Mike. Can you please confirm the names of your sheets, and the columns on the sheet? A column called 'Comment' on a sheet called 'Entity' should be imported into a CDM or LDM without any problem.

    If you don't mind me asking, which tool are you migrating from? You might be better off using that tool's built-in exports, or a Reischmann Toolbus bridge (Reischmann Informatik GmbH - TOOLBUS Interfaces)

      George, NP... We are migrating various EA Sparx model files. I have worked through the XMI file import process and have found the Excel workbook approach the most effective for our situation and the way in which we use the tool. That said, we're certainly open to suggestions, I'll look into the tool(s) you have suggestion, thank you. FYI, the best I can determine, the "Comment" not being populated was some form of user error, this seems to be fine. Regards, Mike
