    Hi Siva,

    Check the reply below:

    1. You might have to write a code to stream the data into XML format from the portal( a Java developer should be able to do it for you).

    2. Once you have the data in the XML format, you have two choice of Connection in Xcelsius.

    a) Excel-XML maps, which allows you to embed the data into Excel and refresh the data.

    b) XML data, you can directly use the jsp file or get the XML. Here you would require the variables names to read the data from XML. This option allows you to send data back from dashboard as well.

    3. You would require the XML to be hosted on server to be able to access it from within the dashboard.

    4. The best bet would be optimizing the data in the backend and use minimum formulas in excel.

    5. It depends on your design and the best practices you are following. Try to keep things simple. 😊
