In Chapter 8, Dashboard Data Connectivity, we discussed a number of data connectivity options for dashboards in SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards. In addition to these standard data connections, Centigon Solutions has developed an add-on that allows us to use Comma Separated Value (CSV) files to grab data from. This recipe will give you a quick walkthrough of the features of this add-on.
Go to the Centigon Solutions website (http://www.centigonsolutions.com/) and browse for
CSV Connector. Download the free trial and install it with the Add-On Manager. You also need a sample CSV file to use in this recipe.
