Spreadsheets

Spreadsheets are great for lots of things, but some people keep everything in a spreadsheet. Some of those spreadsheets might be useful starting points for Tinderbox.

Spreadsheets
This might not be a good example

I'm experimenting today with importing spreadsheet tables into Tinderbox. We can to some interesting things! For example, a lot of spreadsheets put column labels across the top; we can use those to define new user attributes (or even to associate spreadsheet data with Tinderbox built-in attributes). We can set the key attributes of the imported notes automatically. We might do more -- automatically guessing at the type of each attribute, automatically recognizing separators.

If you've got some spreadsheet data you wish were in Tinderbox, this might be a good time to tell us about it. Email me.
