SYMPLiK EXZELLENZ is a program to manipulate table data in Oracle database by using a Microsoft Excel file (xls or xlsx format). Unlike Oracle WebADI, More4Apps, or other Excel-driven solutions, this program does not use Office VBA (macros) to process the data. It is a pure Java solution incorporated with Apache POI and the Oracle JDBC driver to download, upload, insert, update, and delete data from Oracle database tables. It is Linux-friendly for Open Office users as long as the spreadsheet is in Excel formats.
