     Could anybody tell me if there is any way to read excel file in cloud code and extract it's content by each row in cloud code. I have a app builder project where we need to upload excel files and store it's content in cloud data.

    Hi Sairaj,

    In the Cloud Code you have access to the JavaScript SDK of Backend Services and common JavaScript specifications. Thus said, there is not an out-of-the-box solution for reading XLS files from the cloud code. You can accomplish this via an intermediary service on your own that is able to accomplish this and return the proper results.

    However, I'd suggest that you construct your data model used by the client app (if this is applicable) and use the Backend Services data entities (JSON objects instead of XLS) to manipulate the data.

    Let us know if you further questions arise.
