Utility Tool – ColumnArranger v1.0

 

Hello Readers

Today I have got another interesting utility – ColumnArranger. It is used to automatically re-arrange the order of columns in MS Excel to a predefined format.

For example, you receive a report for Accounts-Opportunity in MS Excel.
Provided sequence of columns – OPTY_NUM, ACCOUNT_ID, CITY, POSTAL_CODE, COUNTRY, STATE, STATUS.
Expected sequence – ACCOUNT, COUNTRY, STATE, STATUS, CURRENCY, POSTAL_CODE, OPTY_NUM.

In this scenario, ColumnArranger utility comes handy. Instead of re-arranging columns manually, only specify the column header in desired sequence and run an embedded macro.

 

Origin Of The Tool

During EIM Load, we used to receive data extracts from Data Conversion Team. They designed their own SQL and used to send the data in MS Excel sheet. And in parallel, my team was working on the design of EIM Loads and developed the CTL files with data order not in sync with select part of SQL statements. Therefore, data in received sheets could not be fed to the EIM loads directly.

At this point, I developed ColumnArranger tool. Instead of manually ordering the columns in Excel, I utilized it eliminating the manual efforts.

Utility Tool – Column To Query

 

Hi All,

Please have a look at new utility – ColumnToSQL.

It is used to convert data from MS Excel columns to below formats:

  • SQL Query. For example – select * from S_org_ext where row_id IN (‘a’,’b’,’c’,’d’……)
  • Siebel Query. For example – In Last Name column, you may query as “= ‘a’ Or =’b’ OR =’c’ OR …….”

 

Origin Of The Tool

In data migration phase, while loading data for various entities we had fallout records (i.e. Records that failed to load successfully). We needed to re-extract these records. These count of fallout records was generally in hunderds and it used to take huge amount of time to put those Records Ids in the below shown format. Thus I designed ColumnToQuery macro tool.
