Hi Guys,

How it works? It is a add in which sits on word document, takes the data from excel and gives it to portal. Is there any way to automate it without using automation tool. Please reply asap.

So, as I guess it, you want to automate the process of extracting data from Word & Excel and publish it on your portal.

Right?

No, here i have a add in sitting on the word. There is an excel sheet i upload the data to database and word will take that data and displays in portal.

Ummm, Sachin I am slightly confused here. Why not create a small script on your server side (thats on your portal side), which will take the excel sheet, parse it, and pump that data into the database?

A simple PHP script would do. It would be better if you could give us the specs of your portal.
