How can I script the export of an XLF file to an SWF file?

We have a monthly process where we update our XLF templates with Excel file data in XCelsius 2008, and then export the SWF file from XCelsius.

We have about 25 of these XLF templates to update and export every month, and I'm looking into how to streamline the process. I wanted to ask if there is any way to script XCelsius, or use some SDK to design an application that will automatically perform an export to SWF using an XLF file?

I'm not sure what N-tier of Xcelsius we have, so my tag might be wrong, any suggestion would be helpful.

Hello Zack.

There is no script from SAP that would automate opening of XLF within Xcelsius, refresh the Dashboard and export to SWF.

There might be something from a third party, but I am not aware of that.

I don't want to open Xcelsius at all though. I just want to automate the process of exporting an SWF, so I figured there might be a way to use the application from a command line, or utilize an SDK in some way. It sounds like there is no official SDK, is that right? And no command line options at all?
