I have a question about converting XLS files into a data feed.   I have a table that looks like this  
US Actual Actual Actual
Month Jan Feb Mar
X1:  $      11  $     5.00  $      7.00
X2  $      200.46  $     7.14  $      8.68
  I now need to create something that looks like:   X1, $11, Jan, Actual X2, $200, Jan, Actual X1, $5, Feb, Actual etc   So basically I need to use column values as row values, or interpret column values as values. However what I have seen I cannot access any of the column names in any way.   How do I deal with this?

Hi Phil,

do you want to do this kind of conversion outside of or inside ARIS MashZone? I think it might be easier to do it with a small makro directly in excel.

What I have actually done is intepret every row seperately as data feed that works but is a lot of work. So I think, you might be right about using excel for this.

Hi Phil,

I must aggree: You hit a weak spot. ARIS MashZone depends on row-based data as it expects different semantics in each column. As long as there is no transpose operation I suggest to adjust the data source.
