Excel: Excel can be used to create the dataset- and provide a extra element of validation. The Excel file can be saved as CSV (comma separated value) format and then imported into Datapower. ] Data and programme Structure My database was constructed to arrange information under three different fields: Output Format: My database and website both designed for most the information to be outputted on screen.
