Download Tables

Once you have created a table, you can download the data in the following formats:

  • Excel 2007
  • Excel 2003
  • Comma Separated Value (CSV)
  • CSV string value
  • SDMX Structure Definition
  • SDMX Archive
  • Open Data API Query (for use with the Open Data API)
  • Textual Table Definition (.txd) (Only available if the system administrator has given you access to this download type)

Apart from TXD, the download formats cannot be reloaded back into SuperWEB2. If you want to save a table in a format that you can reuse in SuperWEB2, see the section on saving and reloading tables.

To download your table data:

  1. Create your table.
  2. Select the format from the Download Table drop-down list:

    The Download Table drop-down with options to download to Excel, CSV, SDMX and Open Data API query

    Some of the download formats have restrictions and may not be always be available. See below for more details.

  3. Click Go.

Depending on your browser, the file will either be saved to your default downloads folder, or you may be prompted to choose whether you want to Save or Open the file. For example:

Download Format Restrictions

Some of the download formats may not always be available. This will depend on the type of table you have created:

ExcelExcel 2003 and Excel 2007 have limitations on the size of a table they can display. To prevent data outside of the row/column limit being lost, you will not be able to download in Excel format if your table exceeds these limits.
CSVCSV downloads are not available if the table contains axis derivations.

SDMX downloads are not available if the table contains any of the following:

  • Concatenated fields.
  • Axis or field derivations.
  • Items from multiple levels of a hierarchical field.

Only available if the system administrator has given you access to this download type.

Percentages in Downloaded Tables

When downloading tables containing percentages, the percentage symbol is only displayed in Excel format downloads. Other formats, such as CSV, will include the percentage value but will not show the percent symbol (%) after the value.

Relative Standard Error in Downloaded Tables

Where Relative Standard Error (RSE) data is available, this data will be saved in the downloaded table as follows:

Download FormatLocation of the RSE Data
CSV and CSV StringDownloads will include a separate column for RSE data.
ExcelDownloads will include RSE data in a separate Excel worksheet.

RSE will be represented as an attribute value in the SDMX Generic Data observation element. This attribute is only added when the dataset is weighted and has RSE values in the associated data cube.

For example:

    <ObsValue value="..."/>
        <Value concept="RSE" value="0.437"/>
If RSE data is available then it will be downloaded even if it is not currently displayed in the table in Table View.

Annotations in Downloaded Tables

If the table contains annotations, they will be saved as follows:

Download FormatLocation of Annotations
CSV and CSV String

Downloads will include:

  • Annotation symbols in a separate column.
  • Annotation details immediately after the table data.

Downloads will include:

  • Annotations symbols in the table cells on the first worksheet.
  • Annotation details in footnotes under the table.
SDMXSDMX downloaded at the data set level will contain dataset level annotation descriptions and symbols in the <Annotations> ... </Annotations> section of the XML.

Languages in Downloaded Tables

If your SuperWEB2 system has been set up for multiple languages, then the language used in the download will depend on what language(s) you have currently selected in SuperWEB2:

  • If the current dataset has been configured to support multiple languages, then the download will use the language currently selected from the Dataset Language menu.
  • If the current dataset is only in a single language, then the fields from the dataset itself will be shown in the dataset's language, but any additional text included in the download will be in the currently selected user interface language.
