Treenode Label Type Default Description

  • Use the whole filename (includes the file extension) as worksheet name.
  • Use the whole filename (includes the file extension) as workbook name if current workbook is empty or the import mode is Replace Existing Data.

Notes:

From Origin 8.6, minus value is supported in FNameToBkFrom and FNameToBkTo to count the end of the name from the last character of the file name. It can be used to trim the file extension when you rename book. For example, if you want to import a Famos file named sample.dat, you can specify the setting as below to trim the extension ".dat" when renaming the workbook name:

Options.Names.FNameToBkFrom:=1
Options.Names.FNameToBkTo:=-4
