How to use Mobile Entree Excel Addin in SharePoint 2010

Description: In this article I will just explain how to use Mobile Entree Excel Addin (SharePoint BI)  in SharePoint 2010 with sample example.

Install Excel Add: To install the Excel AddIn go to the site, click on Mobile Entree Configuration->Global Config


Excel Addin: After installation of Mobile Entree AddIn, we will get an option in Excel under "Insert" section named "Mobile View Configuration". This AddIn will help you to set a view when we open Excel in a mobile browser.


Following are the steps for creating Mobile view in Excel:

Step 2: Create "New Mobile Cell Range" for displaying the Excel selected column in Tabular format. Drag Cell to select Range.


It will come automatically on popup window.


Give some title name like "Content Approval".


Step 3: Create Chart to see the data in a graphical View. Before using the mobile entree tool, first create Excel chart and then click on "New Mobile Chart". From the popup window, select the chart. Here I have "chart1". Give some title name like "Graphical representation.


Step 4: Final Chart will look like below.


After the Mobile View Configuration, upload the Excel file to the sharepoint library so that you can access that library inside the sharepoint site. I uploaded my "approval.xls" as a Shared Document.

Follow the steps below for Configuring Excel in Mobile browser:

Step 1: Create  MDS viewer application


After saving, the application will be ready and will be available for Application configuration.


Step 2: Click on Custom MDS View Configuration settings; select the Excel file that we have already uploaded to the document library. Set the view like "My Dashboard".


Step 3: Save the settings. Now everything is now ready.

Step 4: Open the mobile browser; click "Custom MDS Viewer" under "Application1" section.


Step 5: The final Output will look like below.
