Help / Examples / Basics (Excel) / Start Here

Summary

This article details Agile Documents Excel functionality. It builds on what we learned in Word Basics - Start Here, Word Basics - Templates and Word Basics - Find and Insert. Unlike the examples detailed in Word, all the Excel examples are in the same article. Further, this Excel article isn't as detailed as the Word articles. Please note that, where appropriate, concepts discussed in the Word example series apply here even if they aren't explicityly discussed.

Please note that the examples described here are easily installed onto your SharePoint site. That installation procedure is described in Installing Examples.


Excel Template Required

In order to build Excel files, you must specify a Excel template. The template is any Excel document that you wish to use. It defines the style and structure of our Agile Document Excel document.

An Excel template tells Agile Documents to use the Excel document engine to build documents. If no template is specified, Agile Documents defaults to using the Word document enginge. Building an Excel document is supported with the Excel engine.


Example 1: Concatenating Excel Pages


Example 2: Injecting data into a template


Example 3: Find and Insert


Example 4: Conditional Content
