seems like you were not using the right option at the menu to load the file. That function belongs to the menu option 'imoprt' in charge of importing calculators (xml files). The option to handle excel options (upload/mapping, etc) is present at the Calcbuilder Extended version, at the spreadsheet option, you can check a video of how to configure here:

'Build a calculator from excel' (CB Extended)

or at the quick guide

Page 35.

Hope this helps, regards
