Exporting the Excel sheet data into Table view component
I need to export the excel sheet data with multiple columns into Table view component. I am using the Pega-Robotic studio 8.0 the only properties that are related to data-Tableview are ApplyDefaultSort, Filter, RowFilter and sort and method that is relevent to this is Addnew.
Kindly help me to get bunch of records with multiple columns into TableView from ExcelSheet at a time without looping.
Thanks and Best Regards,

You can achieve the same with the use of the ExportData method on the excel connector. The method allows you to specify the start and ending cell range that should be extracted. The returned value is a .NET datatable. So you wouldnt need to push this into a tableview. You can directly push the datatable result into the datagrid component using the datasource property. Below is a screenshot of such steps.
As Jeff mentioned in the other post, our excel connector does not contain a filter method that can be applied to a workbook.
If you wish to accomplish this strictly with the available methods found in Studio, you will need to apply the logic that was outlined in your initial post where you iterate through the excel sheet while updating the table view with the desired data and then exporting the table view data to the grid view.
If your use case allows for you to apply filters to the workbook, you can call an autofilter through referencing the Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel assembly in a script component and calling the autofilter method. Below is a link that goes into the method use and an example of using such a method in C#.
Thanks for the help and It would be great if you can give me a example of using ExcelSheet ExportData to a DataGrid and then iterating over the it and adding it to Tableview component because right now I am facing difficulty in using AddNew method of TableView since it's not taking any data input.
