Wild Card Sheet Names

Would be amazing if we can use a wildcard to input data from multiple sheets within an Excel workbook. 

 

This would be particularly useful when dealing with older Excel spreadsheets such as .XLS and .binary spreadsheets such as .XLSB.

There's already a way to do this but it does require two tool: Input and Dynamic Input.  It's not too complicated though.

Hey @josephschafer 

 

Thank you for sharing this with me.

It doesn't solve my issue while using legacy documents such as .XLS and .XLSB...
