The FusonXL Create Data Set function assists in reporting data to a Registry 10 or 11 statistical data warehouse by creating an Excel spreadsheet form that is tailored to the specific dataflow.

The reporting process is simplified by:

  • Defining the reporting period and frequency which automatically generates an Excel form with the correct observation time periods
  • Optionally setting fixed values for Dimensions and Series Attributes where the value is the same for all series being reported
  • Optionally setting default values for Observation Attributes which apply to all observations unless overridden for specific observations
  • Choosing which non-mandatory attributes to report


  • FusionXL 2.6.0 or later
  • Fusion Registry 10.8.4 or later
  • Fusion Registry 11.0.1 or later
