[resolved] Reading Excel Files Rejects Rows with Empty Cell (Date Column)

I am reading an Excel file (XLSX) that has some Date type columns.  If one of those Date cells do not contain a date, the entire record is rejected and I get a message like the following:

The cell format is not Date in ( Row. 4689 and ColumnNum. 9 )

Is there a way to retain the entire record, but just ignore the non-date data?

Thanks!

Ack!  Nevermind.  Problem was with the cell formatting in the Excel file.
