Issue Details

I use Report Generation Toolkit. I know that Excel sheet can be chosen by Excel Get but when I use this function I can select Excel sheets by its index number. How can I choose Excel sheet by each name ?


You can implement such a functionality by combining Excel Get and Excel Workbook
The example is shown below.
In this example, after all sheet name is extracted, these names are listed in combo box indicator so that the user can choose Excel sheet from this combo box.
The index which is a result of Decimal String To Number shows the chosen Excel sheet's index number.
