I am new to the Salesforce platform. The task I'm working on involves some excel files on salesforce. I have to write a program to analyze the data in these excel files and generate a report. I have the following questions about doing this

  1. Do I need to programmatically download these excel files locally to my machine ?. If yes, what API should I use for this ?. An example would be really appreciated.

  2. Is this something that can be done directly on salesforce?

Thank You.

1. Since you have multiple choices, if you're using .NET or JAVA, you'd probably want to start off with SOAP API. For this, you can run a SOQL query in order to access the Body field of the document object.
