I was trying to read ODS file using R and Tikka Parser but I got stuck.

Can someone help me ?

The orginal file looks like this:

Processing: CARZZ.ods…

I atached workflow:

KNIME_read_ODS.knwf (71.5 KB)

@89trunks you might want to take a look at these examples


I was traying follwing thoses two workflows but without results.
I stucked at second R Snipped - “there is no package hms”

I tried installed it but without success

You might want to install RStudio alongside R and try to install from there instead of from knime. Make sure you have the right path configured in knime.

You also could check your R version and packages

The. The question is which operating system you have.



Thanks - installing RStudio alongside R and then installing packages from there - it helps

I was wondering how can it be done using Tika Parser. I mean how can I turn the content cell to columns just as orginal table ?


@mlauber71 - Thank you :slight_smile:

@89trunks I was wondering the same thing (just seen mentioning of Tika but never saw a working example though) and tried a few things. You actually get the data out from the ODS file but they are all in one column. I was initially able to transpose and convert a small example but a larger example failed and it also failed to preserve date and time fields.

I expanded my initial example to also export to several formats from R directly that would be better suited to preserve data and time formats:


@mlauber71 Thanks a lot :slight_smile:
