I am working in Crystal Reports 11 trying to pull data from an Excel Spreadsheet.

When I grab data from Excel for my report, it pulls the field names in as F2, F3 etc instead of the header rows.  The only field that is ever assigned a name and the name is wrong- is F1- for some reason CR11 pulls this from the Excel Spreadsheet Name & Sheet title.

I have to beleive this is something very simple that I am missing- can someone please help me?
