New version of "Paste Excel data" sample application

I have previously blog about Paste Excel data to database and Editable Interactive Report.

In new sample application I have combined both features and fixed some bugs. End users can update uploaded data, delete rows and add more rows.

Using this sample you can easily build functionality where end users paste data, edit it and then store data to table.

Application is only available for APEX 3.2, but you can customize it also for APEX 4.

Download sample application.

See working example.

    Hi Susan,

    Hi Susan,

    Example JavaScript do not work anymore in APEX 4.1.1. Originally example is for APEX 3.2 and there is few "hacks" to mimic APEX 4.x dynamic actions.

    To get example working on APEX 4.1.1 you should convert example use dynamic actions. Also you can remove extra JavaScript libraries.

    I did have plan rewrite example when APEX 4.2 is out.

    Regards, Jari

    Hi Isma,

    You can customize code freely. I do not provide code or instructions for APEX 4.x.

    Hi Stew,

    I have already prototype where I can sort rows. Report is real interactive report.

    By "Save existing file" you mean save pasted data?

    Jari, Thanks for the note, though ordering isn't really important to me. I guess that means you built an Interactive Reports look-alike instead of using the real thing? Nice job! The next feature I'd want would be the ability to save to an existing file, which I couldn't find in the existing demo. Thanks again, Stew

    Hi Stew,

    Thank you. Hopefully I can add row ordering also to next version. Lets see...

    This seems to work nicely. Great job enabling editing of the fields.
