Hi Jean, 

It will be very easy to use Excel Importer.

The following learning path will guide you

Hi Jean,

As an alternative to using the Excel importer module, you can create a similar approach by creating some manual import logic. To do this, you need to export your Excel to a plain text format such as .csv. You can then create a non-persistent entity in your Mendix model with an unlimited string attribute. You can paste the .csv file in there, and handle the string value from there. You can create some logic to split the string with Java actions such as ‘String split’ supplied by the CommunityCommons module, then commit the created objects.

  1. Export Excel as .csv
  2. Paste the .csv into your Mendix model using a non-persistent entity
  3. Split the string based on the values in your .csv
  4. Commit the resulting list

Hi Martji, 

Just update the page with the available layout. 

You can change the page layout via properties of the page.

  • The selected placeholder 'Atlas_UI_Resources.Atlas_Default.Main' no longer exists.Property 'Parameter' of content for placeholder 'Main'Page 'ExcelImportOverview'ExcelImporter

I am not finding a way to change the page layout. On each page that has the error, the “Main” is in red with an the error. When I attempt to select Main, I get a dialog that says “Edit Content for Placeholder Main”, with no option for changes.

 

Thanks for the help, I am very new to Mendix..

Hi Martin,

Select a page (or open the page) and open its properties pane.

You will find the layout options like  responsive, tablet specific, phone specific etc.

You can find the drop down there to select the different layouts.
