tFileExcelSheetInput throws a null pointer exception

Hi,
I liked the features of the tFileExcelSheetInput and tFileExcelWorkbookOpen.
I run a few test with it before replacing the standard excel components and for the first runs all was working fine.
Then I don't know exactly what triggered it but I started getting a NullPointerException see stacktrace:
Are there any classpath dependencies I need to worry about? does anyone know where can I get the source code for superclass of tFileExcelSheetInput?
Exception in component tFileExcelSheetInput_1
java.lang.NullPointerException

Re: tFileExcelSheetInput throws a null pointer exception

The issue is that a sheet with the sheet-name existed but the sheet itself was empty. no rows.
Would be nice if the code checked for this scenario and gave a better error message.
