Excel Spreadsheet Automation with the QUERY Formula

Pull data, automate spreadsheets, and more with the QUERY formula.

The CData Excel Add-In for Oracle HCM Cloud provides formulas that can query Oracle HCM Cloud data. The following three steps show how you can automate the following task: Search Oracle HCM Cloud data for a user-specified value and then organize the results into an Excel spreadsheet.

The syntax of the CDATAQUERY formula is the following: =CDATAQUERY(Query, [Connection], [Parameters], [ResultLocation]);

This formula requires three inputs:

  • Query: The declaration of the Oracle HCM Cloud data records you want to retrieve, written in standard SQL.
  • Connection: Either the connection name, such as OracleHCMConnection1, or a connection string. The connection string consists of the required properties for connecting to Oracle HCM Cloud data, separated by semicolons.

    Using Basic Authentication

    You must set the following to authenticate to Oracle HCM Cloud:

    • Url: The Url of your account.
    • User: The user of your account.
    • Password: The password of your account.
  • ResultLocation: The cell that the output of results should start from.

Pass Spreadsheet Cells as Inputs to the Query

The procedure below results in a spreadsheet that organizes all the formula inputs in the first column.

  1. Define cells for the formula inputs. In addition to the connection inputs, add another input to define a criterion for a filter to be used to search Oracle HCM Cloud data, such as Language.
  2. In another cell, write the formula, referencing the cell values from the user input cells defined above. Single quotes are used to enclose values such as addresses that may contain spaces.
  3. =CDATAQUERY("SELECT * FROM RecruitingCESites WHERE Language = '"&B4&"'","Url="&B1&";User="&B2&";Password="&B3&";Provider=OracleHCM",B5)
  4. Change the filter to change the data.
