Change Excel sheet name in file generated from Render tool

Hi,

 

The attached workflow does what I want except for 1 thing:

 

The Excel file has sheet names "sheet1" & "sheet2".

 

Is there a way to change this (without opening the file and manually changing them)

 

Ideally I want the sheet names to be the same as the field names fed into the Layout tool.

I modified your workflow to define the Sheet Names in the output file. See attached, specifically the configuration of the layout tool.

@DavidP I'm trying to use this solution and the columns come out huge.  I've tried changing the layout width several different ways but it never works.  I had it set up as Horizontal and it worked but I need multiple named sheets.  Any suggestions?
