Thread: Getting Header data for a Excel File with dynamic fields

    Lightbulb Getting Header data for a Excel File with dynamic fields


    I have a tabular data in excel which has a header.

    The header length & its names are not constants and change with time.

    Is there a way that Excel input can dynamically find the header information when we had defined a transformation without using "Get Fields" from the Excel Input?

    I have the same issue! did you find a work around. This scenario works well with the Excel Output Step (xls), but it does not work with the Excel writer (xlsx), you have to specify the fields in order to be able to export the header.
