Data can be accessed at both a worksheet level as well as distinct tables representing portions of a worksheet. Detection of horizontal and vertical tables within an Excel worksheet can be performed automatically or, for finer control, ranges of cells can be specified. Additionally, data types for cells are preserved ensuring accurate representation of your Excel data to other applications.
