Consider this mouthful: you have a file on a network server, that you want to put into SQL server, that you want to put into Spotfire! I’ll show you this process below along with the common issues that enjoin it.

We had a quick question on how to wrap buttons in Spotfire. Usually buttons come out like this when you don’t specify the length of the button.
But! If you specify specific dimensions, you’ll find that your button label will trail off into the distance like the button below.
We can employ some simple tricks in Spotfire to get this label to wrap. You’ll need to have the ability to write CSS scripts using the <style> tag. Your Spotfire administrator can turn this on for you. To begin, you’ll need to do the following:

For the DCA Wrangler, you’ll need to have your data organization into monthly values, which is tricky if you have daily production data that you’re working with. The conversion, however, is simple in Spotfire. Follow these steps to convert daily to monthly:
Before you press OK, we need to add some transformations:
You’re all set! Repeat the process to include GAS or NGLs.
