BDUG will be meeting on 4/21 from 12 - 1:30 in Dwinelle 3401.

This month, Quinn Dombrowski will cover importing data into Drupal using the Feeds module, and exporting data using Views Data Export. Feeds allows you to fairly easily bring data from spreadsheets, XML or HTML, or RSS feeds into your Drupal site. We'll also cover Feeds Tamper, which lets you tweak the data in various ways (combining spreadsheet cells, find-and-replace, etc.) during the import process. This is particularly useful for research projects that have been storing their data in spreadsheets, Word files, etc., but want to move to using Drupal to provide public access to the data, or facilitate collaborative data entry. Views Data Export makes it easy to get data out of Drupal in a number of common formats (CSV, XLS, DOC, TXT, and XML).
