Your best bet is to export the spreadsheet to a CSV, and import that CSV
into an SQLite database. You can then use the SQLite database as Rails’
database. For more information than that, you’d best ask on the Rails
list.

With Ruport, one of our users did something like this:

    Table("my.csv", :records => true) do |s,r|
      YourModel.create(r.to_hash)
    end

Of course, YMMV and that’s a bit of a hack. Since this has come up a
couple times, i wouldn’t mind adding a more general tool either as a
Ruport plugin or in ruport-util, but I’ve not had a need for it, so
I’d not be the one to write it :slight_smile:
