Excel Data Format

You can use file-based origins, such as Directory and Google Cloud Storage, to process Microsoft Excel .xls or .xlsx files.

When processing Excel files, an origin creates a record for every row in the file. When you configure the origin, you specify whether files include a header row and whether to ignore the header row. A header row must be the first row of a file. Vertical header columns are not recognized.

For a full list of origins that support this data format, see Origins in the "Data Formats by Stage" appendix.
