Are there any data analytic tools within Uipath studio that would assist with csv spreadsheet reporting? If there is not, what is the best method to create a pivot table and how to format the pivot table? Any information would be very helpful, I appreciate your time.
There is a Create Pivot Table activity in the UiPath.Excel.Activities package. It should be noted, however, that pivot tables can only be put into Excel documents (e.g. xlsx, xls, or xlsm). A CSV is just a text file with data delimited by commas. That said, you can import the CSV to a table and use it to create a pivot table for a new workbook.
Anthony I appreciate your quick response and thank you for the information. do you know if there is a way to be able to control how the pivot table is formatted? for example if I have 300 columns of information, is there a way to select 5 specific columns to report on?
There is unfortunately no activity to modify the pivot table beyond this. This would be a great addition to the Excel activities, though.
A workaround you could use is to create a template with a pivot table on empty data sets with the filters already applied. Then use that template to populate the data and use the Refresh Pivot Table activity to update it.
When I started my business, on the advice of a successful businessman, I had to read many articles about data analytics like this https://blog.airslate.com/why-data-analytics-is-critical-for-small-businesses/. In the beginning, I was very angry with him and did not understand what he wanted to provide me with this method, because I thought that I had to pay a lot of money for advertising my business and everything would be fine. However, if a person learns to work correctly with data analytics, it will give his business more than advertising. Therefore, I advise you to read as many books, articles, or even videos on YouTube about data analysis and everything related to it.
