connector label with opened excel file

0 votes
Is it possible to label the connector between two nodes in an opened excel format?


column1 = "PC1", column2 = "attached", column3 = "Switch2"

If the file is opened today I can see two nodes and a connector. But it would be great to see the connector label with the word "attached".

Thanks for your help

You can select the column which is used as label text in the Presentation tab of the Excel Import dialog.

More complex mappings from data to visual properties can be realized with the Properties Mapper tool.

It took me ages to work out how to do this in the days before this nice Q&A forum.
would be good if you had an example in the help. The help is there but it could be clearer. A demo video would also be helpful so users can get the best out of these great features.
