Excel Reader node - Transform tab - SET all columns to String

Hi friends,

It’s possible to set all columns to string format in one click?

Currently it’s not. Sorry about that!

Hope you are aware of - String Manipulation (Multi Column) - node > Convert Type > string(x) function

alternatively you read the data without headers in first row and then use row to column headers node and you got everything as string (if you untick auto type conversion)

But, I imagine something more simple.
Thanks friend.

@Felipereis50 I once proposed this solution:

Also you could try and force the types later. Using a sample table:

Also you could try and use openpyxl to import the file and force strings

import pandas as pd

# Specify your file path and sheet name
file_path = 'your_file.xlsx'
sheet = 'YourSheetName'  # Replace with your sheet name

# Read the Excel file, specifying the sheet and forcing all columns to strings
df = pd.read_excel(file_path, sheet_name=sheet, dtype=str, engine='openpyxl')
