SimpleExport is a FREE application for converting delimited text files (CSV, TSV) to XML and other formats automatically.
SimpleExport is especially useful for converting the output from document scanning systems to the input formats for various document management repositories. While converting data, linked files can be copied, renamed or encoded in Base64.
Purchase the FULL version to get advanced features like command line integration and unattended processing.
SimpleExport is designed to convert any delimited text file into any XML or formatted text file format using XSLT (Extensible Style Language Transformation). XSLT is a well-known programming language for transforming formatted text data. SimpleExport automates the process of applying XSLTs, especially for document imaging applications where the data has matching files that must be moved or renamed along with the data.
Converting CSV files to XML can be difficult, since each column must be mapped to a specific node or property in the XML and the text must be parsed manually without the help of XML functions. SimpleExport parses the input file and converts it to a common XML format that can be easily transformed with XSLT. Custom variables can be defined in the job file that add additional metadata to the XML output or control the XSLT program logic. This lets you focus on formatting the output instead of parsing the input.
SimpleExport contains built-in templates for Digitech PaperVision and ImageSilo, CompuThink ViewWise, LaserFiche, and DocuBase document management systems, as well as the DII format for the Concordance litigation support system. New templates can be created by any XSLT programmer or by our consulting team with just a few hours work. Contact us to request a custom interface.
SimpleExport can run in automatic processing mode or as a Windows service, allowing fully unattended data transformation that is useful for a wide variety of applications, not just document imaging. It can convert any delimited text file to any XML or text format, substitute user defined values in the output, convert images to Base64 and create easy to manage job files for handling transformations that can be launched from a shortcut.
SimpleExport is included with SimpleIndex or it can be used as a standalone application.
