New Excel reader in KNIME 3.3

Dear KNIMErs,

I like the new Excel reader in KNIME 3.3, but one thing annoys me about it: Having to explicitly hit "referesh" when the reader settings change, i.e. typically the the col headers are found in Row1.

It seems liek a legacy UI choice linked to the old (and slow!) parser, but it is horribly out of place in the new age of speedy reads! :-) So could you please make the node "auto-refresh on change" for next release?

Many thanks

We deliberatly decided against an automatic refresh because it still takes quite a long time even for medium-sized files. And if you want to change several parameters you would always have to cancel the last analysis, which will be wrong anyway.
