Hi Vikas,

sorry for the late answer, was hoping for a smarter reply. Thing is, it's 
unclear to me when and where these transformations can be applied. Rough guess: 
Data > Streams... (and in this dialog you want to allow transformations to the 
data), or Data > XML Source..., or Sheet > Link to External Data... So please 
give us more details about the supposed workflow, the scenario, and the users. 
In other words who, when, where.


PS: X-Post to the design ML, which would be the better choice for design/UX
