Pulling data from Excel - Can i Add a loading GIF?

Hi there,


I am building a question app, and have set questions pulled from an excel document.  Just to make life easier and anyone can update the app then etc.


I have noticed that sometimes the questions appear to not load (just white space) and i can see the little loading 'blocks' at the top.  I am worried, non-techy users will not notice this and think that the app is broken.  This being said, i would like to add a loading gif that pops up instead.  I have browsed google, but this is more catered to loading database queries etc.  


Can this be done with excel?

It is the same like with every other data source or -operation. You can either go for "LoadingSpinner" and set this to data or you can create yourself an own animation by adding an image, set the image to an uploaded or http url animated gif, set visible with a variable to false and during your operation set this variable to true, so your animated gif becomes visible
