Dear community, it was in the far July 2011 that I gave you updates on the abap2xlsx project with the reporting of my adventures at SAP Inside Track in Chicago (blog). In the last weeks, I had the idea to write a blog and few days ago a great present by SAP Mentor Gregor Wolf to the project (I will give you more detail below, keep reading) gave me the final sprint to be there on time for the New Year celebration.
Abap2xlsx is still the most popular project on Code Exchange with more than 3,500 downloads and close to 300 members. There is a great interest for this project, discussion board on Code Exchange is very hot, many people are asking and helping and many members are contributing (thanks you all) to improve this project adding new features and fixing some bugs ( yes, we had some 🙂 ).
Today I will pack the 6th release of the project including some interesting features (fixed issues list):
- Reader functionality enhancement, now we read back styles and name ranges
- Support to 16,384 columns for each sheet
- 40 demos report available (including demos presented at TechEd Madrid 2011)
But many features were already available in release 5 (released on September 2011) that was not presented to the community yet (fixed issues list):
- Macro enabled workbook support (see YouTube video and abap2xlsx F.A.Q.)
- Dynamic conditional formatting Layout zooming
- Workbook advanced properties
But the surprises are not finished yet
