The first row of the selected worksheet will be treated as header row. The output variables showing up in the output section of the building block will be derived from the header row.

You will find all columns of the selected worksheet as variables. The single line on the right of the variables indicate that each variable represents just a single value: they contain the value of the selected row.

You can the access the columns from the loaded row(s) by simply using the output variables on the right of the building block in your templates.

If you have selected to load just a single row and now want to create documents for each row you can click on the batch icon in the main toolbar or select Batch from the Run menu.

Click on one row or multiple rows to toggle if you want to load just a single selected row or multiple rows.
