I'm ultimately needing a way to regularly upload and parse through a multi-page spreadsheet and then summarize some data from it.
After trying Sheetnode (and disliking its Excel importing implementation, which creates a new node for each sheet in the spreadsheet), I'm thinking the Data module coupled with Feeds might be the best solution.
However, I'm needing some way to download the original spreadsheet after parsing. Ideally, this would mean the user adds a spreadsheet to a filefield and hits upload, after which the original is stored in that field and Feeds API is starts to do its magic.
To this end, is there any way of having Feeds import from a file uploaded via the Field API instead of through Feeds' import page?
(Or alternately, the user uploads via Feeds' Import page and the original spreadsheet is then stored in a fieldfield -- either works.)
