retrieving data from cloud?

Jun 18, 2014 at 4:10 PM
I am interested in using the android app to collect data and upload it to a cloud from field sites in remote areas. I have setup an account with microsoft azure (per the app instructions) and have been able to upload trial data from the android to the cloud. However, I am having trouble getting the data off into some kind of workable format. Does anyone have any experience with this to help a non-computer programming person like myself?

Thanks in advance

mlloyd: I have the same situation. Manged to get my SQL data established in the cloud and to upload from the phone. But now what? I need to get that data on a continuous basis preferably to excel or into the epi info access database. Could someone tell me how to do that, please.

Regards

I was able to import the files into excel using the steps published here:

One thing to note, is that in my case tables did not show up in step seven, so I unselected the check-box "connect to a specific table."

Hope this helps.
