Selecting Columns on Excel Data Import

8 - Asteroid

And...I figured it out. Name the range in Excel, then save the file. Once you do that, the "Select a named range" radio button will be available. It does mean that all of your columns need to be in a contiguous range though. (Or I suppose you could have multiple inputs that you then join)

I had the same problem where I could not edit the SQL directly when .xlsx was selected (in 2019.4).


As a workaround, you can change the File Format to be .sqlite, then click the Table or Query "...", edit the SQL, then set the File Format back to .xlsx.
