Importing Excel files

Note
This feature is available in Import and Validate Pro and Excel Import license versions only.
Warning
When Importing Excel files you should not open Excel, or have Excel open, else you will soon be confronted with the Excel Data Link Properties dialog, which will mess things up.

Important:

Importing Excel files is done using a combination of

  1. accessing a table in the Excel file by making it a Linked Table (mandatory)
  2. picking up values from individual cells in the excel file using automation (optional).

Ad 1. If you don't have a table from which you need to import records, you can just select 1 cell with a value, and call that the table.
