I was able to arrange complex excel workbooks, update them very day and send them to the right user automatically.
The documentation should be improved but I have been always able to understand what to do with the support of the developer.
This is really a precious component.
Many thanks to Rüdiger.
I also have scheduled exports running weekly that email the spreadsheets and downloadable reports on the site with user set parameters. all working with no issues. I will certainly be looking at the J3 version when it comes to upgrading my sites.
Along the way I have run into a few bumps but between the support forum and direct email contact with the developer, Ruediger, all of my issues have been resolved in lightning quick fashion. I normally don't write reviews but felt the need to here simply because of the truly 1st class support I have received on this extension.
However I have had some issues with this extension and I request support for it.
As first, reaction time of developer is very slow. Further I build a test site to show my problem and make possible to developer to test there. He did not do anything.
So I tried to get appropriate support for a year long, but without success.
Because my issue is not resolved I can not use this extension on my production site and is useless for me.
For me - pure waste of money.
Moving to 2.5 I found this. Installed it, fast and easy configuration, copied over the code from SQL 2 Excel and presto, instant conversion, 100% compatible. Could not be easier.
This gives you huge flexibility in creating reports from tables. You'll find it replaces a lot of coding if you think of ways to present detail data to users.
It seems as if you are trying to install jDBexport Version 3.0.3 on a JOOMLA 3.x system - as our product is not (yet) compatible with this version of JOOMLA, this is not a question of "not functioning software" but rather of prerequirements for the software that are not met on your system. You left our email from august 13 unanswered for more than two weeks - and claiming now that we do not respond is simply not true. I hope we can find a mutual solution for this dispute (by email, not here in the forum of course).
I would have saved lots of time if I would have spent the Money at the beginning.
Meanwhile, I discover more and more Features.
In this case, I payed Little for that what I get.
I thus recommend very warmly this extension, you can take it without fear
I can't express how gratefull I am that Schultz took it over, added already some small items ...
This is just another amazing product that everyone can use.
One thing might be usefull, but maybo not allowed due to copyrights, the manual idsn' completelly finished and i don't have a Sql2Excel version anymore ....
I hope that as soon as they have time they can complete it.
thanks for your kind words. The extensive documentation for jDBexport is next on our priority list (before adding any new features), however this will be done in a step-by-step task. Meanwhile you as customer can login to our website and navigate to the jDBexport -> Legacy issues, where you will find some helpful resources concerning the predecesor product sql2excel-pro.
After a few problems I had with the settings I asked for support from Schultz. Their response is fast, and the help is good! Make sure You've got yr rights structure set properly, otherwise Joomla is not showing the download button. This is a Joomla thing, and does not mean the extension is not working!!
Ones I've got my settings and rights set the right way, the extension is working great!
You can't do without it if you wanne give yr website visitors a chance to download excel files!!!
