My first question for the community…
I’m trying to develop an experience for a client that handles an excel file containing about 50,000 rows of data, and I’m having some difficulty.
The request is to have names constantly scrolling on the screen in a configuration similar to the uploaded screen capture. and (in theory) if the experience was left running long enough, all of names from the sheet would eventually display.
I’ve had several thoughts, such as trying to assign values for the names from the data set to simple text assets and scrolling those simple text assets across the screen, but I can’t figure out how to do that.
I’ve also tried using ten rows of Asset Grids, and moving those across the screen, but to get some of them to display items later in the data field (staring around number 30,000 or so) make the player crash.
My next thought is to make intuiface carve up the larger Excel file into smaller ones and working from those smaller files…
But I wanted to check in here and see if there was any advice about handling such a large data set to be had.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give, and even for just taking the time to read this question!
