Excel Import workshop

Do you need to import metadata into PowerDesigner from Excel? Are you evaluating modelling tools, and need to find out more about SAP PowerDesigner?

–   then   –

Join the author of “Data Modeling Made Simple with PowerDesigner” in a short workshop, to learn about and practice with the standard PowerDesigner Excel import feature.

PowerDesigner’s built-in ability to import metadata from Excel files is unsurpassed by other mainstream data modelling tools. No scripting skills are required — the Excel import is aware of the metamodel for the model you’re creating or updating, and suggests likely targets for your metadata.
