Re-organizing imported data

Postby dcek » Mon Feb 12, 2018 11:36 am

Hi,

I have a workfile that imports data from an ODBC server. The data is 20+ exchange rates with information on each rate downloaded in an separate work page. I need to rename the series and collect some of them in a different work page altogether (in the same work file would be the simplest I guess).
The file will need to be updated regularly.

I have tried using links but have been unsuccessful thus far.
Any help would be much appreciated.

I'm sorry but you're going to have to provide more details.

Did you at least get the import working successfully? If not, what errors did you encounter?

Did you try renaming the columns during the import wizard (there's a Rename Series button on the last or penultimate page of the Import wizard)? If so, what errors did you get?

When you created the linked series objects, were you able to update them successfully? If not, what was the error/problem?
