Dear Sepulveda, your product appears quite interesting.
I have a question. In my work I often add, after the first row of
column names, a second row with units (m, kg, ...) and possibly a
third row containing either a comment or the default value to be used
in case of empty cell (both can be specified in a single row, with an
appropriate syntax).
Is (or, can be made) your product compatible with this habit?
If so, can you deal with units in your processing?
