network drive/shared folder data into Entity

Hi Colleagues, Is it possible to access the network drive/shared folder csv/xsls file and then upload the data into one of the mendix entity? If so, can anyone help me with the solution Thanks.

Working locally, you can always copy the file into the resources directory, create an entity that generalises from FileDocument, and use “Get file contents from resource” from Community Commons to access it. 

However, if you are wanting to populate your data on a web server and the file changes regularly, you may just find it easier to upload it using the standard upload functionality. 

Hope this helps.
