Excel and EA are a powerful combination.
Here are some of the common tasks when using them:
•Adding more fields to the export
oShowing tagged values in the worksheet
•Controlling the element types in a spreadsheet
•Editing and adding class attributes and operations
•Comparing the contents of your spreadsheet with what's already in EA - before you Import.
•Adding different types of worksheet to an existing workbook, or open different kinds of worksheet as new workbooks
•Working with relationships:
oEditing the relationships which are shown in a diagram
•Saving Excel spreadsheets into EA
•Creating spreadsheets using Templates
Why is there no 'Delete Element' function in eaXL?
Because it's too easy to press the wrong button, and delete a huge amount from a model. We have created development versions of eaXL with this feature, but we made so many mistakes and deleted so many elements we didn't mean to, that we took it out.
