Load Employees in Siebel : Reading Data from Excel File

Hello All,

In my previous post about Loading Employees in Siebel i described the process through CSV file and IO based approach.

In this post lets achieve the requirement with excel file and business service.


  • Excel application installed on the machine (server), so this approach works only in Windows Environment.
  • Accessible location where we need to place the Excel file

Formating the Excel File :

Here we are entering data from 2nd Row.

Now we need to write a business service that reads data row by row and insert data in siebel. Since we are reading data in terms of rows and columns, so 2nd Row 2nd column will fetch value Rahul , and 3rd Row 2nd column will fetch Ankit and this will be our base of iterating through the excel sheet.

Final Code :

  • Reading Excel and Initializing BO and BO

  var ExcelApp = COMCreateObject("Excel.Application"); 
  ExcelApp.Visible = false; 
  var oBOEmp = TheApplication().GetBusObject("Employee"); 
  var oBCEmp = oBOLdVal.GetBusComp("Employee"); 

  • Getting value from Excel columns 
 while(ExcelApp.ActiveSheet.Cells(i,1).Value!= null) 
// Give the fields here 
// Employee Details
   var LastName = ExcelApp.ActiveSheet.Cells(i,1).Value; 
   var FirstName = ExcelApp.ActiveSheet.Cells(i,2).Value;   
   var Email = ExcelApp.ActiveSheet.Cells(i,3).Value;  
   var PhoneNumber = ExcelApp.ActiveSheet.Cells(i,4).Value; 
   var LoginName = ExcelApp.ActiveSheet.Cells(i,5).Value; 

   //Position Details
   var Position = ExcelApp.ActiveSheet.Cells(i,6).Value; 
   //Responsibility Details
   var Responsibility = ExcelApp.ActiveSheet.Cells(i,7).Value;  

  • Setting Fields Value and Invoking New Record     
   SetFieldValue("Last Name",LastName); 
   SetFieldValue("First Name",FirstName);  
   SetFieldValue("Phone Number",PhoneNumber);
   SetFieldValue("Login Name",LoginName); 

  • Closing Excel File 
 ExcelApp = null; 

Refer exact code and sample file here .. You can mail me for any comments or suggestions.

  7. My advice to this company is one. Please don’t say you deliver timely Matlab assignment help yet some of your writers are too lazy to keep the deadlines. I was very clear that I needed my communications system assignment done within 24 hours and the person I gave the job promised he was going to keep time. Well, guess what, the person delivered the work two days later saying he had an issue with his laptop. I still don’t know what could have happened if I hadn’t been smart enough to lie about my deadline. It saved my life because I was able to hire another Matlab assignment helper for the task and this other person actually delivered the work in just 6 hours.
