Laravel Excel import using Maatwebsite Excel package with additional columns from View

0 votes

I am trying to import data into MySQL from an Excel file. My table has 2 foreign keys project_id and site_id when importing I am selecting these 2 fields from dropdowns in my View. Is there a way I can map these 2 fields to my import collection? Mind you, the 2 fields do not exist in the import file (for integrity reasons) but they do exist in the table.

Collection

namespace App\Imports;

use App\Proposal;
use Maatwebsite\Excel\Concerns\ToModel;
use Maatwebsite\Excel\Concerns\WithHeadingRow;

class ProposalsImport implements ToModel, WithHeadingRow
{
    public function model(array $row)
    {
        return new Proposal([
            'building'  => $row['building'],
            'floor' => $row['floor'],
            'area'    => $row['area'],
            'room'    => $row['room'],
            'luminaire'    => $row['luminaire'],
            'actual_qty'    => $row['actual_qty'],
            'installed_qty'    => $row['installed_qty'],
        ]);
    }
}

Controller

public function import() 
{
    Excel::import(new ProposalsImport, 'proposals.xlsx');
}

View

@extends('projectmanagement/proposals.base')
@section('action-content')
    <!-- Main content -->
    <section class="content">

How to fix: I know you're fed up with this glitch, therefore we're here to help! Take a deep breath and examine the problem's explanation. We have numerous answers to this problem, but we recommend that you utilise the first way because it is tried and true and will work for you 100 percent of the time.

Override import controller’s construct method, sending all the parameters you need, like this:

class ProposalsImport implements ToModel, WithHeadingRow
{
    protected $project_id;
    protected $site_id;

    public function __construct($project_id, $site_id)
    {
        $this->project_id = $project_id;
        $this->site_id = $site_id;
    }

    public function model(array $row)
    {
        return new Proposal([
            'building'   => $row['building'],
            'project_id' => $this->project_id,
            'site_id'    => $this->site_id
        ]);
    }
}

And then, call it from your Controller like this:

public function import(Request $request) 
{
    Excel::import(new ProposalsImport($request->project_id, $request->site_id), 'proposals.xlsx');
}
