Column limit loading data from Excel

I have an XLSX spreadsheet that has ~1000 columns.  When I try to load this into Qlik Sense it gives an error message.  I understand I will likely have to break this up but I want to know if there is a limit so I can keep that in mind. 

I know SQL imports have a limit of 255 columns.  Does Qlik Sense have the same/similar limitation?

Re: Column limit loading data from Excel

Hi Jared,

Just used the attached file and gave me no error here.

I believe the limitation will be the same as Excel.

1.048.576 rows X 16.384 columns

But i've never encountered situations like that from Excel files.
