$title Reading empty Cells with colMerge and reading merged Excel Ranges with cMerge (GDXXRWExample20,SEQ=122)
$onText
This model demonstrates the usage of the colMerge parameter when reading empty
cells in the first part and the handling of merged Excel Ranges when reading
with cMerge in the second part.
This model is referenced in "Reading empty Cells with colMerge" resp. "Reading
merged Excel Ranges with cMerge" from the GDXXRW Documentation.
$offText
* Reading empty cells with colMerge
* The option colMerge is useful only for the first three columns of the example data
Parameter
A_d 'results for the default value of colMerge (colMerge=0)'
A_1 'use the non-empty value of a previous cell as the value for empty cells in the first column'
A_2 'use the non-empty value of a previous cell as the value for empty cells in the first two columns'
A_3 'use the non-empty value of a previous cell as the value for empty cells in the first three columns';

* Reading merged Excel ranges with cMerge
* All three values for the option cMerge are demonstrated
Parameter
B_d 'empty cells of a merged range will remain empty (default, cMerge=0)'
B_1 'the merged value of a range is used for all empty cells being part of the range (affecting merged ranges in the headers only'
B_2 'the merged value of a range is used for all empty cells being part of the range';
