XLS Row and Column Sizer

Continental Nodes for KNIME version 1.2.0.v202005250952 by Continental

The XLS Row and Column Sizer node changes the row height or column width for a selected rows or columns.

This node's standard mode of operation is to receive the selection of columns or rows to modify via tags in the provided XLS Control Table and the size instructions via the node dialog. Matching tags can appear anywhere on the sheet, so e.g. a matching tag in cell B2 would be able to address column B or row 2.

This node alternatively provides a direct mode in which the XLS Control Table does not hold tags, but the desired size values directly (or missing values for rows/columns not intended to be sized). In this case, the incoming table must have all Double-typed columns but otherwise be in line with a XLS Control Table in terms of row and column names. In direct mode, row sizes are only allowed in column A and column widths in row 1.

This node defines a formatting instruction only which needs to be written to an xlsx file via the XLS Formatter (apply) node subsequently.
