I'm looking for help with readxl. I need to access an .xlsx file from the web. I want to use readxl as it will allow me to specify col_type. The file is a data collection template containing no rows. I'm using it to facilitate column ordering of data collected in the field. I can access the data using openxlsx::read.xlsx, however all the columns are classified as logical which complicates dplyr::bind_rows in my script
so, this imports the file but with incorrect column classes
read.xlsx("https://....xlsx", sheet = 4)
and this gives an error
readxl::read_xlsx("https://....xlsx", sheet = 4)
path does not exist:
It seems like read_xlsx should work. I can always import with openxlsx and use purrr::map to reclassify cols, just looking for the simplest solution. Any assistance would be appreciated.
