Automator is a data conversion solution that uses existing ASCII or ANSI reports, PDF files, XPS files, ISAM files (e.g. XLS, MDB, ACCDB, DBF, Open XML Spreadsheets (XLSX/XLSM), html files, and OLEDB/ODBC sources as a source for data. You can input report files (e.g., TXT, DAT, PRN, LOG, .etc.) into Automator and then export their data to a variety of formats (e.g., PDF, XLS, XLSX/XLSM, MDB, ACCDB, HTML, DBF, etc.) or to an OLE DB or ODBC destination.  Automator also allows you to export files to a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, FTP/SFTP site, email destination, or distribution list. In short,  Automator lets you extract, transform, move and load data faster and more easily than previously possible.
