    Hello all,


    I need to import a zip file that is downloaded from a specific website url. The downloaded zip file can contain either an Excel file or a Csv file. I would prefer not to have to unzip the file myself if FarPoint can handle the extraction for me. Is this possible? If so, can someone post a bit of code to get me started? Thanks in advance for any ideas and/or suggestions!

    j2associates,


    Spread does not support directly importing an Excel or CSV file that is inside a ZIP file.  You would need to unzip the ZIP file yourself.  Then Spread can import the Excel or CSV file.

    Thanks bobbyo, that was the answer I was expecting but it never hurts to ask.
