Overview:

I have a Profile and selected to import a txt file.
Now I want to change the file in my profile to a xls file but I'm not allowed to do so, why is this?

How To:

The reason is that txt and xls files use different connectors in Nebula DataBridge.
CSV connector = txt, csv, tsv
Excel connector = xlsx, xlsm, xltx, xltm, xls, ods

When you change the file you see that in Dropbox you cannot select the other file type and with a manual upload you will receive a message that the file is invalid.
