How to structure a database created in Excel

Question:
How can I structure a database created in Excel?

Answer:
If you want to use data in an Excel database with Oracle Power Objects, there is no need to create a separate database, because you can use ODBC to access the data in the Excel spreadsheet.

If you want to duplicate the Excel spreadsheet, you can create the structures you need in a database through OPO. You can then create a database connection to the Excel database with an ODBC connection and create a simple OPO form that uses the connection.

After you have created a connection to the Excel spreadsheet, you can use the techniques found in my book Mastering Oracle Power Objects to export the data from the spreadsheet to a text file.

The final step is to use the techniques in the same chapter to import the text data into the new spreadsheet.
