Cannot import excel file into the database

Post by Antony » 30 Apr 2017 18:33

Hello, Ive been trying to import excel files into the database but its not working? Does the excel file has to be in certain format or anything? Also I've been trying so select providers for the products but no providers came up, does that mean the database doesn't have the info for it? Which is the database i should be using then (free database)?

Would be much appreciated if anyone answers this, thanks.

Hello! I'll try to provide answers:
Does the excel file has to be in certain format or anything?
Yes (as you may expect..). You can create the needed format by exporting a process to excel.
no providers came up, does that mean the database doesn't have the info for it?
Yes, then the database you have does not contain processes which produce / provide the products you need in your process.
Which is the database i should be using then (free database)
A database that contains the product you need - to find this out, the product search on openLCA Nexus is probably useful.

Hth,
Andreas
