        Hello Adam,

        The Use Case is the following.

        Assume I have a collection of data elements, for instance Employees data including name, job position etc.
        I'd like to be able to populate an Excel spreadsheet with the content of the collection using forEach tag and name the cells using a specific pattern at the same time, so I can refer to these cells from within my Excel spreadsheet using a cell name instead of a classical reference i.e. A1.

        It should be enough to enhance forEach tag settings by prefix/postfix strngs which would be added to an index of an element.
        If I had three Names of Employees (three collection' elements) extracted by forEach tag then cells might be named upon one of patterns
        1) EmployeeName1, EmployeeName2, EmployeeName3
        2) 1EmployeeName, 2EmployeeName, 3EmployeeName
        3) Employee1Name, Employee2Name, Employee3Name

        I have tried to explain my needs also under the Support Request #23716.
        Please let me know if more input regarding the Use Case is needed.

        Regards
        Lukasz

        Hello,

        My name is Adam Jackson and I'm a Product Manager with Windward. Thanks for sharing your idea with us.

        Can you provide us with a Use Case for this feature and maybe even a sample template? This is the first time we've heard of this Excel feature or had a request for it so we'd like to review it internally to see if it's something that may provide value to other AutoTag users. Thanks!
