GDXViewerExample.gms : Illustrates conversion of GDX data into different formats

Description

To export to a file or a database in batch mode, one can use the following statement:

   execute 'gdxviewer.exe i=inputfile.gdx type=outputfile id=x';

where "type" can be xls, pivot, csv, txt, inc, html, xml, mdb and "id"
parameter indicates a symbol to be exported from the GDX file.
(Thus, x is a symbol in the GDX file.) Note that for type "sql", no
output file is used. The database is rather given as part of the
connection string. If a path or filename contains blanks, the name
must be surrounded by double quotes as in "file name". Only one symbol
can be exported at a time. An option file (.ini file) can be given
using ini=Options.ini in the statement. If no .ini file is given,
the .ini file of the interactive mode will be used.

* XLS writing
execute 'gdxviewer.exe i=Result.gdx xls=Result.xls id=x';

* Excel Pivot Table writing
execute 'gdxviewer.exe i=Result.gdx pivot=ResultPivot.xls id=x';

* CSV file writing
execute 'gdxviewer.exe i=Result.gdx csv=Result.csv id=x';

* Text file writing
execute 'gdxviewer.exe i=Result.gdx txt=Result.txt id=x';

* GAMS include file writing
execute 'gdxviewer.exe i=Result.gdx inc=Result.inc id=x';

* HTML file writing

* XML file writing

* MS Access MDB file writing
* In this particular case, x contains the special character INF and
* must be substituted with numbers before it can be written to a database.

* SQL Database Table writing
* As already mentioned in the beginning, database is given as part of the
* connection string. This part writes to the database Result.mdb which
* should be generated by the above statement.
* For the connection string, alternatively, 'connectionstring=DSN=Result' can be used,
* however, Result.mdb must be entered as 'User DSN' in
* 'Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Data Sources (ODBC)'.
