Unfortunately, as you mentioned above, your data must be in a table.  There is no work around when working with an Excel file.

Hi @APdebian 

As @ScottShearer noted, the Excel data must be in a table format. Here is how to create the table in Excel. I hope this helps!


For Windows:

  1. Select a cell within your data.

  2. Select Home > Format as Table.

  3. Choose a style for your table.

  4. In the Format as Table dialog box, set your cell range.

  5. Mark if your table has headers.

  6. Select OK.

For Web

To add a blank table, select the cells you want included in the table and click Insert > Table.

To format existing data as a table by using the default table style, do this:

  1. Select the cells containing the data.

  2. Click Home > Table > Format as Table.

  3. If you don’t check the My table has headers box, Excel for the web adds headers with default names like Column1 and Column2 above the data. To rename a default header, double-click it and type a new name.
