Tip 3 – Downloading Metadata Using the Excel Interface
Let’s face it. Analyzing data in an application interface can sometimes be cumbersome. Sometimes it’s just easier to do it in Excel.
FDMEE comes with a rich reporting framework that allows you to export data to PDF and Excel. But occasionally you’d rather dispense with all of the reporting formatting and just have the data. Or, maybe there isn’t a report for the exact thing you want to review. Enter the Excel Interface component.
Using the Excel Interface component you can download just about any metadata item in FDMEE. The Entity Type drop down list (yes, it’s a weird name) gives you a pre-defined list of objects you can download to Excel. Go to Setup > Integration Setup > Excel Interface and try it out.
