The smartDataPump's approach is unique and doesn't reinvent the wheel. However, there are lots of related solutions out there, and some of them even have influenced the smartDataPump to a great degree. Carefully rethink your requirements before you implement a foreign application or utility. Check out the Progress® V9.1E ADM2 source, these SDOs talk to Excel® and Co. Evaluate all candidates:    

Temp Table Expositor
Download the free utility tt-file.p developed by Jeff Pilant and Patrick Tingen. The temp-table expositor produces various outputs (CSV, Excel®, HTML, Progress® data browsers) for temp-tables and database buffers (tables) on demand. The latest release adds support for Sylk and DF output formats.

The Data Pump Process
The article The Data Pump Process by Steven Lichtenberg and Geoff Crawford explains a well thought out software architecture on generic data output. Get DataPump.p from or from Innov8.

GenericAUD is a set of routines to maximise the utility of Progress Dynamic Query Capability to provide a single set of routines for all reference file maintenance. GenericAUD takes as web parameters the file name and key field information and displays the records in the database for that file. It allows add/update delete capability as well as display functionality.

Dynamic Data Creation and Display
These are generic templates that are designed to manage data from a web form, create a new record and then display in table format the matching records. This structure would apply to order line type data entry where you are adding records and redisplaying as you go. The HTML form piece would need to be written for each form used and the field definitions are done via a preprocessor define. The creation and display of temp table records is based on dynamic processing. These routines are an extension of the work Geoff Crawford and Steven Lichtenberg did in creating the DataPump.p set of routines. Download

If you've developed a related software or if you find one please drop me a message. I'll put in a link here if it's not crap ;)

To avoid misunderstandings, the smartDataPump shares no similarities with Oracle's Data Pump Utility, see their white paper.
