Best way to extract data from 2 years records/Numbers files for tax return?

I am wanting to find a way of generating my annual tax returns from my financial records, which will be stored in a separate Numbers file for each Calendar Year.
As the Tax Year (in the UK) is different from the Calendar Year (in the UK it runs from April 6 to April 5), I would need to extract information from two different Numbers files, to a third Numbers file. Is it possible to do this, and would this be relatively straightforward?
I'd be interested to hear from others who have used Numbers for a similar purpose, and how they have organised things.

The easiest soluce is to forget the use of separate documents.
Use one sheet per year and it will be really easy to achieve your goal using only formulas.
With separate documents, the unique soluce is to use an AppleScript.
I may write one but I'm a bit tired because I posted a lot of such soluce and in most cases, I don't know if they give satisfaction to the askers.
Coding for the clouds isn't my cup of tea so I think that for some days, I will leave AppleScript and will work upon the archives of my workshop.

  • Best way to extract data from archived cube

    Hello Experts,
    Can anyone tell me best way to extract data from archived cube.
    Basically I am trying to pull all the data from archived cube and then load it into another brand new infoprovider which is in different box.
    Also I need to extract all the master data for all infoobjects.
    I have two options in my mind:
    1) Use open hub destination
    2) Infoprovider>display data>select the fields and download the data.
    Is it really possible to extract data using option (2) if records are too high and then load it into another infoprovider in new system.
    Please suggest me the pros and cons for the two options.
    Thanks for your time in advance.

    Hello Reddy,
    Thanks a lot for your quick reply.
    Actually in my case I am trying to extract archived infocube data and then load it into new infoprovider which is in different system. If I have connectivity I can simply export data source from archived infocube and then reload into new infoprovider.
    But there is no connectivity between those two systems (where archived cube is and new infoprovider) and so I am left with the two options I mentioned.
    1) Use Open Hub
    2) Extract data manually from infoprovider into excel.
    Can anyone let me know which of the two options is the best and also I doubt on how to use excel in extracting data as excel have limit of no.of records 65536

  • The best way to extract data from MySQL

    I have a MySQL db that contains information about whether respondents are coming to an airshow, what days they plan to attend and how will they travel ( . I can export data from this to a spreadsheet as the summary info will only be seen by the organizers but ideally I'd like to create a page that will summarize responses. Something like this:
    Autos: xxxxx Occupants: yyyyyy
    Aircraft: xxxxx Occupants: yyyyyy
    Other: xxxxx Occupants: yyyyyy
    Autos: xxxxx Occupants: yyyyy
    Aircraft: xxxxx Occupants: yyyyy
    Other: xxxxx Occupants: yyyyy
    Camping: xxxxx Occupants: yyyyy
    How did you hear about the Airshow:
    Radio: xxx TV: xxx Newspaper: xxx Magazine: xxx Internet: xxx Other: xxx 
    I thought I would create a couple of recordsets, one for respondents who will attend on Saturday and the other for respondents who will attend on Sunday then all I'd need to do is count the number of respondents and sum the number of occupants for each recordset, and count/ sum campers for the whole file and similarly for the "how did you hear about it" question. Is this the best way or am I missing a more elegant solution?

    The page I'm trying to create is here and the questionnaire is here .
    I went ahead and created recordsets using advanced recordsets and these seem to be working, here's a sample SQL
    SELECT *
    FROM plan
    WHERE Saturday = 'Saturday' AND plan.howArriving = 'Auto'
    I created a recordset for each combination of day and transportation mode - six in all
    This selected the correct records.
    To display the count of how many records selected I then used in DW Insert/Data Objects/ Display Record Count/Total Records which generated the following code:
    <?php echo $totalRows_rsSatAuto ?>
    This worked OK - not elegant but OK and I repeated it for each combination of Day and Transportation mode!!
    So there are two problems I'm having:
    I know I can select the records I want but how do I display the sum of the column containing "How many in your party" - i.e. in the PHP code generated above what do I replace $totalRows_rsSatAuto with?
    There are two questions using radio buttons where I'd like to display the count and % for each option selected. I can select all records for these questions but what code do I put to sum the number of selections for each option and what code do I put to calculate the percentage
    I understand the arithmetic involved which is pretty simple but it's the mechanics of coding that has me stumped. It would really help if you could give me a sample for say the "Are you camping overnight" question which has a "Yes/No" option only. In my mundane way I would create two recordsets, one for "Yes" and one for "No", and use the same technique I describe above for counting Total Records in each recordset, but then I'm stuck with how do I calculate and display the percentages. I must be missing something very obvious as I'm sure there just has to be a more elegant solution.
    Thanks so much for your continued interest.

  • Best way to move data from table to a file

       I have a two tables in ecc, And I need to read the data and copy to a file and ftp to another server.
    One table is really huge. What is the best approch to move this data using PI. I can not avoid PI, since it needs some mapping.
    1. Proxy-PI-FTP
    2. Dump the data to a file and use FTP_PI_FTP
    3. Any other.
    Thank you

    it is really a project decision but I can give you some pro's and con's.
    Proxy --> File
    You cab communicate directly with the XI pipeline which means you don't have to go through the adapter engine.
    RFC --> File
    This is very standard SAP and most ABAP programmers will be able to utilize this.
    IDoc --> File
    Standard SAP ALE technology but can get very big due to useless segments
    Dump File
    The biggest positive of this is the fact that you wouldn't have to convert to XML which will ensure that the message doesn't grow in size as is the case with all of the above.
    This is very brief but should give you a good idea....

    What kind of data you are looking to move?
    Database export/import is only supported for full database export/import and the application release should be the same on the source/target nodes.
    You can move the setup using iSetup or FNDLOAD.

  • Is there a way to extract data from one of e.g. 7 rows from the multicolumn listbox?

    is there a way to extract data from one of e.g. 7 rows from the multicolumn listbox?

    All the data can be extracted by creating a property node and read the Item Names property...then you get a 2D array of all the rows and columns. Wire that array into an index array function and input the row you want (e.g. the listbox value, if you want the row currently selected...)...that's it. See attached example.

  • Extract data from Oracle in excel file

    I have a requirement where in I need to extract data from Oracle in excel file and the excel worksheet name should be "Data".
    for eg. excel file name "AR Data_DDMMYY" and excel worksheet name "Data"
    I have used the UTL_FILE API to extract the tab delimited data which can be opened in excel but it is not exactly an excel file as the worksheet name is same as the file name.
    I tried using utl_file.fcopy and frename.
    Is there any way to do this using PLSQL?
    select * from v$version;
    Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release - 64bi
    PL/SQL Release - Production
    "CORE     Production"
    TNS for HPUX: Version - Production

    cursor c is
    select * from scott.emp;
    v varchar2(100);
    f utl_file.file_type;
    file_name varchar2(100) := 'AR Data.xls';
    dir varchar2(50) := 'CESDIR191710';

    --utl_file.frename(dir, file_name, dir, replace(file_name, '.xls', '_')||to_char(sysdate, 'MMDDYY')||'.xls', false);

    I was able to generate the excel 2007 file with the data using the package from below link;

Verify that the file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?"Then you have three options:
    1) stop using anton's package and find another one that supports the old and deprecated version of Excel 2003
    2) write your own package to produce an Excel file.
    3) Upgrade your version of Excel to a recent version
    I tried the programs from other links on the forum but I am still getting this message. The client does not want this message to be displayed as the excel file works as an input to another system.
    Can anyone help me with the issue?
    Also, is it true that the programatically generated excel file is actually an xml file which is renamed to .xls and hence it shows the message while opening such files?Yes, Excel supports several different formats for it's files. By default, if you save an XLS files from Excel, it writes it out in a Microsoft proprietary binary format, which you would be hard pushed to replicate easily from PL/SQL. Excel also has the ability to save it's files as XML format, which is more readable and easier to produce programatically, whilst still allowing you to have multiple sheets, formulas and formatting included in it. That's the format that most people who need formatting and multiple sheets opt for when programatically generating their data as excel workbooks. (There's also an SLYK format that people used to use before that, but it's not as flexible)
    If you want to write your own, the easiest thing to do is to start with a blank workbook in Excel, and put in your basic requirements e.g. a couple of named sheets, and some data in different formats (number, date, text etc.) and different formatting options etc. Save that file in XML format from Excel and then open up the file using notepad/wordpad to look at the structure. There'll be a whole load of redundant rubbish Microsoft put in there, but you should be able to figure out the basic structure of XML required to give you what you want.

  • What is the best way to append data from one field to another?

    I have the following table, table1:
    Name Null? Type
    ZIP VARCHAR2(10)
    The table has duplicate entries that need to be removed. The records that will be removed need the
    data in the Remarks column appended to the Remarks data of the record that is not deleted.
    For example, the following listing shows a sample of the duplicate records.
    Mail ID Last Name First Name M Address City St ZIP Remarks
    189 BROWN STEPHEN 6706 MOESER LN EL CERRITO CA 94530-2909 Sf7#s124,f16#d7996(NML)[Cl#117][Ml#1649][NMf1#d288][NCf9#d319][SNl#e62]

    I have the process of deleting duplicates working but have yet to determine the best way to move
    the Remarks data from the deleted records to the preserved record.
    I know there are probably various ways to approach this.
    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
    Here is the sql for deleting duplicates.
    DELETE FROM table1
    WHERE mail_id in (SELECT mail_id FROM table1
              where not first_name = 'Null' and
    not last_name = 'Null' and
              not city = 'Null' and
              not state = 'Null'and
    not last_name = 'Anon'
              select min(mail_id) from table1
              group by first_name, last_name, city, state, address_1, organization, title);
    THANKS in advance!!!!

    Here's quick and dirty example probably a better way to do it, but this is what I came up with quickly.
    My table looks like this:
    123 Ruff Shawn 555-555-5555 Called 10-10-04
    135 Ruff Shawn 555-555-5555 Called 10-12-04
    201 Ruff Shawn 555-555-5555 Called 10-19-04
    The code below will concatenate the remarks column from the rows, and delete the 135 and 201 rows, then update the 123 row with the concatenated remarks.
    l_remarks varchar2(500);
    l_min_mail_id number;
    select min(mail_id) into l_min_mail_id
    from test
    group by last, first, phone;
    select remarks into l_remarks from test where mail_id = l_min_mail_id;
    for i in (select mail_id, remarks from test
         where last = 'Ruff'
              and first = 'Shawn'
              and phone = '555-555-5555'
              and mail_id <> l_min_mail_id)
    l_remarks := l_remarks||','||i.remarks;
    delete from test where mail_id = i.mail_id;
    end loop;
    update test set remarks = l_remarks where mail_id = l_min_mail_id;
    Hope this helps.

  • What is the best way to save data from GPIB Device in a file?

    I have a Keithley SourceMeter and want to save readings in a File along with settings on the front panel and timestamps plus several other infos. What is the best way to do this? Which file type? Any recommendations or hints could help me?

    Hi Andy,
    There are 3 main file formats that you can consider writing your data out to in LabVIEW:
    ASCII files are useful because every operating system and almost every application can read/write ASCII format files. Use ASCII files when:
    Other users or applications will need to access the data file.
    You will not need to perform random access file I/O
    File I/O speed is not crucial
    Disk space is not crucial
    Examples within LabVIEW Example Finder: Fundamentals >> File Input and Output >> Write to Text and Read from Text
    Binary byte stream files are more specific to data storage and retrieval. Use b
    inary files when:
    File I/O will remain in LabVIEW only -- no other applications will be needing to write/read that file. There is no standard formatting for binary files and thus other applications or operating systems may be unable to read the file.
    Files are smaller than ASCII files
    Easier and faster random access to data
    Examples within LabVIEW Example Finder: Fundamentals >> File Input and Output >> Write Binary and Read Binary
    When to use datalog:
    If you need to record data with a mixture of types, it can be cumbersome to convert everything to ASCII or to keep track of the binary formatting.
    Datalog format is binary and internal to LabVIEW, so again only use this format if no other applications or operating systems will be needing to perform file I/O on the file.
    Examples within LabVIEW Example Finder: Fundamentals >> File Input and Output >> Write Datalog File and Read Datalog File
    Good luck!

  • Best Way to send data from InfoProvider to DBTable

    Hi all,
    I need some advices on this subject :
    I want to send some data, stocked in several InfoCubes, to a table.
    This cubes are linked by a multicube (for queries).
    I don't know the best way to send the data in a table :
    - Use Open hub on each cube to send data
    - Use ABAP code for extract data directly from MultiCube (possible?)
    - Use open hub on multiprovider (I think it's not possible to plug a open hub to the Multiprovider...)
    What is the best practice on that?
    Can you help me please?
    Thanks in advance,

    Oh yes, my mistake.
    I didn't think abuot the APD solution.
    I think it should be a good one...
    With the ABAP, it seems very difficult indeed.
    I'm gonna check this way ! Thanks for your help Daniel !
    And except the licence cost, the Open hub should be a good solution??

    Thank you very much,

    How is the best way to do this ?How much are you planning to send?
    You can use COPY command. Ensure that you have valid database link between two databases.
    Available options are:
    create - creates a new table. errors out if the destination table exists.
    replace - drop the destination table and re-creates with data.
    insert - inserts data if the destination table exists.
    append– appends data into an existing table.
    use set arraysize 5000 -The arraysize specifies the number of rows that SQL*Plus will retrieve from the database at one time.
    copy from scott/[email protected] to scott/[email protected] create new_emp using select * from emp;
