My solution

Had to use row 1 & 7 because I had the input tool take out headers, additionally I had to re-save the files as .xlsx because of a security issue in our system.

I went for a slightly more automated solution...

I added a Text Input that enabled me to input the required Row and Column numbers that would then automatically include the specified cell values in the final Browse.  This made the solution slightly more complicated, but will satisfy those of us that prefer not to have hardcoded parameters in the workflow.

Solved it in a more manual way...and learnt a new tool -- Multi-Row Formula after checking the solution.

Slightly different but still fine for the results..
