Excel Reader Poor Performance with Hidden Columns on v4.6.2

As a follow up to this post:

Is there any progress on the Excel reader performance issue with files with hidden columns or protection? File read times are SO long now. I have tried the settings changes in the above thread but they didn’t help me. I cannot un-protect the file or unhide the columns either.

Anything to report? Thanks!

@AndrewDevlin have you considered using a Python workaround in the meantime?

Hey Andrew,

we resolved the issue with the hidden columns with the release coming next week :slight_smile:

Best regards
Lars
