I’m trying to create a Dataset into ignition from a excel macro based spreadsheet. I figured out the first part (converting the .xlsm to a .xlsx format) then reading the data into pandas. I was also able to create the dataframe using pandas and numpy using pycharm. However since ignition uses java instead of c we cannot use pandas or numpy in a native ignition platform.
I guess my main question would be would it be possible for Ignition to call the script from a external automation source such as Jenkins and then pull that data back to ignition? Or is there an easier approach to this?
