Microsoft Excel overwrites data instead of Updating a row

I’m having issues with this Excel node; it’s not updating rows, whether by ID or any column. If I set a range from A1:BV2, it only goes up to that row 2 and overwrites. My spreadsheet has more than approximately 30,000 rows. With the Google Sheets node, I never had this problem, and I didn’t have to set a range. Now, with Microsoft Excel, everything is chaotic. Does anyone know how to work around my problem and have it search the sheet for the row to be updated? Thank you!"

Hi @Fernanda_Silva, I am so sorry you are having trouble.

I had a look into this and was able to reproduce the problem. To be honest, I am not quite sure I understand how this node should handle Append or Update operations, but I reckon this is very much not it.

As such I will add this to our engineering backlog for a closer look and a fix. We will of course update this thread as soon as there is any feedback.
