Hi,

Splunk is generating five .csv file correctly. My requirement is to generate an excel sheet which would contain five tabs corresponding to each .csv file. I have heard about excel_export module and I downloaded it from splunk applicaiton but it is in .tar.gz format.

Can any one let me know how to get the same for windows and how to integrate it with windows to get "export in excel" option in SPLUNK.

Please help !!

Thanks
Abhay

I think you may have been confused somewhere along the way.
If I understand you correctly you have downloaded an app from Splunk-base? All apps are either tar.gz or .spl (or .spk, I forget, either way its just a .tar.gz renamed :P).

All you need to do now is install the app by logging into your Splunk instance, heading to the App drop down in the top right, manage apps and then select to install an app from a file. You can then select the tar.gz file to install it. For anything else make sure you read any included README or INSTALL files with the app.

Have you actually read anything on http://splunk-base.splunk.com/apps/29336/splunk-for-excel-export ? It clearly states there is an example dashboard and where it is located and that it is a module. E.g you would need to add the button to the dashboards you want to display it.
