Tim Tow’s Outline Extractor Released
On Saturday, July 13, 2013, an outline extractor which only works with 11.1.2.x and higher and provides XML output was released. For those of us who used the old Visual Basic extractor provided by Olap Underground and maintained by Tim Tow’s organization, this is good news.
Joe Aultman presents the importance of being automated in chapter 9 “System Automation The Groovy Way” which jump-starts automation techniques for finance and IT professionals with an example of building an outline extractor in 7 steps.
As Tim noted, “You still have to do something with the XML format for it to be useful.”
