    Default Excel Writer step and cells background color

    Hi everybody,

    I'm using the Excel Writer step to fill an Excel template file. The cells in my template has a yellow background but as soon as the steps fills that cells the background color is lost and they get a white background. In the step configuration I set the "Leave style of existing cells unchanged" to true but it seems it doesn't work.... or am I missing something?

    Is there anyone that can explain me what I am missing?

    Kind regards
