  4. Under New Project Preferences[1] click on Filters.
  5. Select the MS Excel Spreadsheet (*.xls) or MS Excel 2007 Spreadsheet (*.xlsx) filter, depending on your Excel file.
  6. Tick the box Skip hidden rows or columns.
  7. Click on OK.
  8. Use the simple or advanced project wizard to create a project and import your Excel file.


  1. Any changes made under New Project Preferences will not be retro-actively applied to existing projects. If you have already created a project and want to import an Excel file into it, open the project first, then modify the project preferences'. You will notice that the section New Project Preferences has changed to Current Project Preferences.
