Excel Reading Component - How to prevent the files from opening?

Good afternoon everyone !

My question is about the Excel Read component in Grasshopper. To retrieve data from one file, the grasshopper interface has to open it. However, I wanted to know if it was possible to prevent it from opening by using another grasshopper component pretty similar to the “Write Options” component used to write data into an Excel file. Indeed, the model I’m developping is using one input file with lots of spreadsheets containing different informations.

Thanks in advance for your answers!

Hi @oceane.claude

The excel read and write from lunchbox keeps the excel file “closed”.
