Thread: Empty Header row in Excel File

  1. #1

    Default Empty Header row in Excel File

    While reading/input of Excel File, the header row is missing. I would like to detect it first when accessing the Excel file and send to reject folder if there is no header present in Excel file? is there any way I can achieve this? Thanks in advance

    Do you know the expected content of your header row? i.e. Field names of columns.

    If so, use the Excel Input step and uncheck the "Header" box. Then read the first row, and use a Filter Step to determine if this content matches your expected Header, else discard.
