Upload an Excel file into an Apex Collection

This is a Process Type Plugin to load an Excel file into an Apex Collection.
Excel can be in format XLSX, XLS, XML 2003 or CSV. Because the data is loaded into the "varchar2" columns of an Apex Collection only the first 50 columns of an Excel sheet are loaded.

New version 0.804
  XLSX: Fix bug for formated strings
  CSV: Support for HT separator
New version 0.802
  Support for XLSX numbers stored in scientific notation
  Fix bug for XLSX empty strings

If you are uploading a XLS-file, you should try an updated version you can find at the demo-page, https://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/wwv_flow_file_mgr.get_file?p_security_group_id=8299127631645792085&p_fname=process_type_plugin_nl_amis_scheffer_process_excel2collection_0812.sql That version might solve your problem

hi, i noticed that date data types are changed in the collection table..
"1-Oct-14" became "41913"
is there a way to convert it backwards to retain "1-Oct-14" and update the collection table??

Thanks Anton Scheffer for your reply.
Then what can be the reason that it is only uploading 500 records.
Secondly I tried to upload data using DEMO link provided, there too it just uploaded 500 records.

No there are no limits build into the plugin, 5000 records should be no problem

Is there a maximum limit of rows that can be uploaded. I tried to upload data with more then 5000 records but only 500 could be uploaded.

Thanks & Regards

When declaring
wrong_file exception;

In code
if t_filename like lower('%.xls%') OR t_filename like lower('%.xlsx%') OR t_filename like lower('%.xml%') OR t_filename like
log( 'proper file found ' );
raise wrong_file;
end if;

In exception handling
when wrong_file
t_rv.success_message := 'File must be XLS, XLSX, CSV, or XML';
return t_rv;
Suddenly stop working (3) - solved
