easy methods to export excel
An XML file, or Extensible Markup Language file, carries a unique use on a computer. An XML file
contains plain text information that is coded in such a language that it can be comprehended by
both humans and machines. This means that an XML file has the text of a document that is then
encoded so it can be read by the computer as well. While an ordinary user might not be familiar
with a use for this function, many programmers use XML files to arrange information to be
displayed in the Internet. For instance, perhaps a document is saved as a text document. Then
the document needs to be displayed within a webpage on the Internet. However, the website host
does not support a text file. This is a case where an XML file can prove very useful. While the
website might not support a text file, many programs do support an XML file. This allows for
application of text files which would have formerly been impossible.
It isn't very hard to imagine a scenario where transformation from an Excel spreadsheet to XML
may be wanted. Multiple spreadsheets may contain data that is wanted to be shown on a
company's website or even within the company's personal Intranet network. A text file won't be
permitted to be uploaded. However, an XML file will have the information coded so the computer
can read and upload it. A short search online will reveal a number of SaaS (software as a service)
sites that offer to do file conversion. These websites permit a file to be uploaded, converted, and
then downloaded. A huge downside of these programs is the constant uploading and
downloading. This adds a good deal of extra time to the conversion process. Also, many sites
only allow for conversion of one file at a time. This produces problems for anyone with hundreds
or thousands of spreadsheets that require reformatting.
Fortunately, a quick search for ‘How to Export a Spreadsheet as XML file software' at
http://www.hothotsoftware.com/excel-export-to-xml-files_software/ will bring up a fantastic
program for simple XML file creation. This program permits multiple Excel spreadsheets to be
converted to the XML format with only a few mouse clicks. After opening the program, you will
see that the entire program operates within a single window, easing any concerns of getting lost
or confused within the program. At the top of the window is a field that shows any files you wish to
convert. Directly below this field is a button labeled ‘Add File(s)' which permits files to be added to
the program. There is also the capacity for the software to seek Excel files within a specified
folder. Below this field are a number of commands to allow for file customization. This includes
where to find the XML Header Tag information. This can be taken from the first row, first row and
column, or can be designated as not existing. Then, the data can be specified to be collected by
row or by column, based upon how it is structured in the spreadsheet. Finally, the very bottom of
the window contains the command to start the process. Once the program initiates it will ask for
the name of the output file and then convert your files.

formatting restrictions, a quick conversion may erase those worries and allow you to get back to
