excel converting to webi (BI 4.1)


Every month I receive an excel workbook with two reports (order & receiving). Each report includes around 25 columns whereby I go thru renaming and deleting unwanted columns.

I was wondering if this task can be done in WebI.  1. In the receiving report I’d like to rename receipt date and store name as in order report:  --> order date and supplier.

Order Report ---  Receiving Report
Order Date    ---    Receipt Date (should be named Order Date)
Supplier      ---      Store Name (should be named Supplier)
Account Code  ---  Account Code
Order Number ---   Order Number
Blanket Order ---
Order Type    ---    Order Type
Distribution Amount --- Distribution Amount

2. Delete the remaining columns in both order and receiving reports so in the end I’m left with the following:

Order Number --- Order Date --- Order Type --- Blanket Order --- Supplier --- Account Code --- Distribution Amount

3. Reconcile the two reports: combine duplicates on the basis of order number to get distribution amount totals

4. Subtract receiving from order (order – receiving) to determine what order has been cleared/received, what are outstanding etc. 

(Please let me know the best way to attach a sample excel file)
