    Default Need help in generating reports using excel sheets as a source.

    Hello Experts,

    I am very new to this tool and would like to seek help from you.
    I have a requirement where i need to generate reports using excel sheets as source.

    Small brief on what i have done:
    I have used excel as input->table output as the output.

    I have created a connection 'Test' and connection type as 'H2' and acess as native JDBC.. and port 9092. user name: sa and password: blank

    Now I have created a transformation and the transformation was success. then i have created a model and the model is saved. Now i have opened report wizard from Data integration tool. A simple and small report is created. Now i wanted it to be saved as excel where i fail

    Also, i need to compare one month data with the other month. I need help in load the excel data into database first and then pulling it into report designer and creating the reports.

    I am struggling with the connections and the data access.

    Please help..

    Thanking you in advance.

    You can generate the report inside Pentaho report designer (XLS output) or with the Pentaho Reporting Output step.
