SuperSTAR 9 Documentation : Download Tables - SuperWEB2

Once you have created a table, you can download the data in the following formats:

  • Excel 2007
  • Excel 2003
  • Comma Separated Value (CSV)
  • CSV string value
  • SDMX Structure Definition
  • SDMX Archive

You cannot reload a downloaded table back into SuperWEB2. If you want to save a table in a format that you can reuse in SuperWEB2, see the section on saving and reloading tables.

To download your table data:

  1. Create your table.
  2. Select the format from the Download Table drop-down list:

    Some of the download formats have restrictions and may not be always be available. See below for more details.

  3. Click Go.

Depending on your browser, the file will either be saved to your default downloads folder, or you may be prompted to choose whether you want to Save or Open the file. For example:

Download Format Restrictions

Some of the download formats may not always be available. This will depend on the type of table you have created:

ExcelExcel 2003 and Excel 2007 have limitations on the size of a table they can display. To prevent data outside of the row/column limit being lost, you will not be able to download in Excel format if your table exceeds these limits.
CSVCSV downloads are not available if the table contains axis derivations.

SDMX downloads are not available if the table contains any of the following:

  • Concatenated fields.
  • Axis or field derivations.
  • Items from multiple levels of a hierarchical field.

Relative Standard Error in Downloaded Tables

Where Relative Standard Error (RSE) data is available, this data will be saved in the downloaded table as follows:

Download FormatLocation of the RSE Data
CSV and CSV StringDownloads will include a separate column for RSE data.
ExcelDownloads will include RSE data in a separate Excel worksheet.

RSE will be represented as an attribute value in the SDMX Generic Data observation element. This attribute is only added when the database is weighted and has RSE values in the associated data cube.

For example:

    <ObsValue value="..."/>
        <Value concept="RSE" value="0.437"/>
If RSE data is available then it will be downloaded even if it is not currently displayed in the table in Table View.

Annotations in Downloaded Tables

If the table contains annotations, they will be saved as follows:

Download FormatLocation of Annotations
CSV and CSV String

Downloads will include:

  • Annotation symbols in a separate column.
  • Annotation details immediately after the table data.

Downloads will include:

  • Annotations symbols in the table cells on the first worksheet.
  • Annotation details in footnotes under the table.
SDMXSDMX downloaded at the data set level will contain database level annotation descriptions and symbols in the <Annotations> ... </Annotations> section of the XML.

Languages in Downloaded Tables

If your SuperWEB2 system has been set up for multiple languages, then the language used in the download will depend on what language(s) you have currently selected in SuperWEB2:

  • If the current database has been configured to support multiple languages, then the download will use the language currently selected from the Dataset Language menu.
  • If the current database is only in a single language, then┬áthe fields from the database itself will be shown in the database's language, but any additional text included in the download will be in the currently selected user interface language.
