PA, please help us...
Just an FYI to all. In the instructions for Excel using XML API it references Using the XML API in the paragraph in step 2. In the instructions on Using the XML API, there is a typo in 01. of Key Generation https://hostname/esp/restapi.esp?type=keygen&user=username&passwordpassword=password. It should be &password=password.
I had the same results following the directions with Excel. I followed the same directions but instead used a web browser to create the key, then I used the key (again from the web browser) to create the xml. I then saved the xml to a file and imported the file using Excel data import. Though the spreadsheet is not pretty. I have multiple lines for each rule.
I have been thinking about how to do basic (think text or html output) customizable reporting from XML and as an experiment implemented something in Python that uses a templating language call "JSON Template". I'll attach the current documentation which has examples and if there is interest I can try to post it to devcenter.
