> Microsoft Excel is a wildly popular application that businesses rely heavily 
> on to store, visualize, and calculate data. Any single company most likely 
> has thousands of Excel documents containing data that could be very valuable 
> if ingested via NiFi and combined with other datasources. Apache POI is a 
> popular 100% Java library for parsing several Microsoft document formats 
> including Excel. Apache POI is extremely flexible and can do several things. 
> This issue would focus solely on using Apache POI to parse an incoming .xlxs 
> document and convert it to CSV. The processor should be capable of limiting 
> which excel sheets. CSV seems like the natural choice for outputting each row 
> since this feature is already available in Excel and feels very natural to 
> most Excel sheet designs.
> This capability should most likely introduce a new "poi" module as I envision 
> many more capabilities around parsing Microsoft documents could come from 
> this base effort.
