Thank you very much for your quick and detailed reply!
I’m indeed using the Excel reader in the end
I’ll try to provide more detail:
I need to read several excel files from a folder. (Excel reader is fine here)
I need to read the same (one-row + header) table from each file, irrespective in which sheet it is (here is Excel reader no longer enough, because it doesn’t allow me to identify a named range)
Since the table I need is always in the first sheet and always occupies the same range of cells, I can use the Excel reader, choosing the first sheet option.
(Note that I’m just lucky here, because technically the table could be in any other sheet after the first one)
All I need to do now is learn how to store the first sheet name as a variable, so the loop doesn’t fail as soon as it finds an Excel file that has a different name for the first sheet.
