How do I cite data from Excel?

Guys, how do I cite data from Excel? I am making a SLG-like game so I want to cite data from Excel, which is more efficient than I drag this drag that drag this drag that.
I dont know anything about programming except print Hello World. XD

You will not be able to cite data from Excel, as you cannot load an XLS/XLSX file into GDevelop.

You could, maybe, store info as a CSV. However, you’ll then need to use the filesystem events: File system [GDevelop wiki]

As well as figure out how to parse the CSV data. I don’t believe anyone’s done that before, so you’ll be working through that process as the first person to do so (meaning others won’t be able to give much guidance).

It’s probably worth trying a converting tool like this:

Thx, but it seems that a French maker use excel to load variables,maybe. I dont know French at all:joy:

At least looking through google translate, they’re talking about going to XML, not XLS/XLSX. Very different things. And just like Gruk mentioned above, you’d be converting to them from JSON.

Excel can open XML files, although not in a very readible format, but they’re discussing converting out from GDevelop to Json to XML then opening that in Excel. Which is not a very worthwhile endeavor.

THX!I am Chinese so the result of google translate is weird for me to understand LOL
