Module Development - tag provider and tags handling

Hello Everyone,

I have looked up and tried to follow Getting Started guide for Module Development. However, I believe I need a lot more learning to do what I am trying to achieve. Hoping I can get some directions from this forum to start working towards -

The Idea is - we want to create a function that takes a excel file as input and creates tag provider as well as tags and udt's in that provider from given excel.

I've followed instruction to create and implement sdk for managed tag provider. However, not sure if that is the right path.

Thank you

Consider getting the functionality you need working with jython and Ignition's native support for Excel (via the Apache POI libraries). Then you can reimplement in a module if it really needs to be part of your module.
