Do not segment untranslateable texts in XLS

I have tables in XLS, but there are a lot of untranslatable texts. I need to import in Transit only texts to be translated. How can I mark unnecessary texts to be not imported?

You can do this modifying the XLS FFD, but this requires a deeper knowledge of Transit and the use of regular expressions. A short help on the scratch is not possible here.

Documentation on this can be found in the reference guide ( and the ffd_customize.pdf document which has to be obtained from the Star support directly.

Sorry not to be able to help further,
