I am trying to import an Excel table into Whitebox (on Windows 10) and can't find a solution to preserve the attributes. I have UTM coordinates in the first and second column and two numerical attributes in the third and fourth colum (see screenshot below).
I tried to export as CSV or ASCII text and import it in whitebox. While the points are mostly located right the attributes get lost.
I tried different delimiters, deleted empty rows (one at the end), changed the encoding of the file, remove the first column,... but nothing had an effect. What I achieved was importing the attributes as strings but then I cannot interpolate the points as numbers and I don't want to convert the columns to integers in Whitebox as the workflow should consist of as few steps as possible (training reasons).
There must be a way how to do it so if anyone has a hint what else I could try I would be happy.
Edit: I also tried to use the English version of Whitebox instead of the German translation to prevent possible errors related to the comma but this didn't work. Also using CSV data with different delimiters (comma, point, semicolon) has no effect.
