Before loading your data into Looker, you will have to prep it first. If you don't already have a data structure in which to store the data you retrieve, you'll have to create a schema for your data tables. Then, for each value in the response, you'll need to identify a predefined datatype (INTEGER, DATETIME, etc.) and build a table that can receive them. Google Ecommerce's documentation should tell you what fields are provided by each endpoint, along with their corresponding datatypes.Complicating things is the fact that the records retrieved from the source may not always be "flat" – some of the objects may actually be lists. In these cases you'll likely have to create additional tables to capture the unpredictable cardinality in each record.

Although Looker does not connect directly to an Excel spreadsheet, there is a way to upload data via a derived table. This method works if you have a limited number of columns and rows, such as monthly forecasting data that is not very scalable for large spreadsheets. This data is also static and will not automatically update if the underlying spreadsheet data changes.
Keeping data up to date
If you've made it this far, congrats! You probably have a written a program or script to extract your data and move it into Looker. Now it's time to think about how you will keep this data up-to-date by loading updated or new data. Of course, you can just replicate all your data every time you have updated your records, but that would be extremely manual and time-consuming. Luckily there is a better way. The key is building your script so that it can sense incremental updates made to the data. Thankfully, OWA Pro’s API results include fields so that you can identify those records which are new since the last update you made (or since the most recent record you have copied). Once you have taken new data into consideration, you can easily set your script either as a continuous loop or cron job to pull down new data as soon as it appears. And keep in mind that, as with most codes, once you write it, you will need to maintain it. In case OWA Pro changes its API, or if the API sends a field containing a data type that your code does not recognize, you might have to change the script.
