[Improvement Request] XLS Reader


when creating workflows for the "users" in our team, I try to make it as simple as possible for them. I make use of the Quick Form nodes wherever possible, which goes hand in hand with the usage of many flow variables.

When it comes to the XLS Reader node and the necessity to only read certain areas of an XLS file, I have to add a Java Edit Variable node and let it derive the Integer values for all four fields. This is okay, but unneeded, since the node is able to do it on its own.

Please improve the node and let us use String type variables for the FIRST_COL and LAST_COL fields!


Thanks for the report.  This is a reasonable request and I have logged it in our issue tracking system.
