FM - Is There a Way to Point to Which Excel tab you want to Import?

Is There a Way to Point to Which Excel tab you want to Import?  I don't see anywhere in the Filemaker import script step where you can select the tab.  I have way too many tabs I need to import and I'd rather not Save As a hundred times in order to have the correct tab be imported.  If not, what is the workaround?  Thank you.

I found that when I select a different file, it allows you to choose which tab, but the only way to choose a different tab is to select the file all over again.  Anything easier?

I don't know of a way to do it that is completely automatic. You can make the import dialog visible and then select each tab in succession but of course that leaves you open to errors….

360Works Scribe Plugin can read from and write to Excel, Word and PDFs, so it might be able help with an import from a selected Worksheet within an Excel Workbook, but I've not tried it to know.
