Video: XML Map Refresh Component in Xcelsius

Visit my new blog at

Did you know you can update your source data without re-importing a spreadsheet into Crystal Xcelsius?

Extensible Markup Language (XML) defines a format for sharing data across platforms. Because Excel 2003 and Crystal Xcelsius both offer built-in XML capabilities, you can use the XML format to feed data dynamically into your Crystal Xcelsius-built model or dashboard. The advantage is, once you have built an XML-enabled model, you can forgo the re-import process. Sound good? Watch the Videos:

    Would it be possible to write data from a Xclsius model to an excel file using XMl or another connectivity?

    There seems to be an issue with the host where I uploaded the videos. I will sort it out ASAP. Sorry for the inconvenience.
