I am trying to import an excel sheet as a process. I select the "read excel" operator an drop it into my desgin. Then, every time I want to run the "import configuration wizard" it won't work. Each time the "normal" data selection window pops up. 

Can anyone help me asap? I think I have installed all required components.


Thank you!!!

    Hi @pia_kuhn,


    Do you mind to post step by step screenshots of your process? The import configuration wizard works for me.


    All the best,

    Also make sure you are not trying to connect the input port on the left of the operator.  This will typically override the configuration of the wizard.

    Hi@ Nad
    I had the same problem. I think you can import your data from the repository and if it doesnt help you it's better to put your excel in a folder and rename it and then use "read excel".
    My problem solved in this situation and I hope it can help you. :)

    Hi @mbs
    thanks for your quick respond.
    Maybe I have not installed all required components yet. Do you know if I have to install a specific component?

    Best regards,
