Sometimes Excel file will not import -no error

I am importing data fro an Excel file into an existing FileMaker file using FileMaker Pro 16.  The Excel file may be quite short, perhaps only 2 rows, the first of which is the field headings.  I have checked the box to not import that first row.


On more than one occasion, FileMaker has imported no data, even though some is there.  I get no error message.  On the most recent time, I manually deleted the row with the field headers and unchecked that box, then it did import that record.


I need to turn this process over to a person who is not tolerant of these inconsistencies so I ned to fix the problem.  Any suggestions?
