Inventory Collect Tool - no data in Excel

Hi Guys,

 

I've joined a community recently and I am happy to be here because I see a lot of specialists here.  I had no idea that I will face first problem so soon. i have a bunch of Netapps to do inventory. I found a nice tool called "Inventory Collect tool". I connect it to the filer get a lot of data but cannot see it in nicely generated spreadsheet.

 

I have to files one is xml filled with conrete data and second as a workbook which has to present this data in readable form.

When i start workbook it is empty. Somehow excel does not ingest data from xml.

 

I was looking througout the Internet but no solution for that.

Do you have such problem and know how to solve it?

 

Regards,

Jakub

Re: Inventory Collect Tool - no data in Excel

Hi Jakub,

 

In general the inventory collection tool (ICT) is used together with the migration tool (7-MTT)

The generated assesment XML should be imported into the 7-MTT tool for the assesment report (workbook) to be generated.

Re: Inventory Collect Tool - no data in Excel

Hi Leung,

 

Thank you for your response. I did as you said. i installed 7-Mode Transition tool and import those exports. Nothing happened at all. When i generate report from them I see much smaller files and still cannot see the excel in proper maner.

I imported file which has 2MB and when i generated transition report to ver 9.5 I got teo files one for Word and one for Excel. They weight about 160KB so much less then source file.

 

What may i do more to get this data nicely presented?

 

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Jakub
