> When converting a flowfile containing an XLS file to CSV, the newly generated 
> flowfiles do not inherit the attributes from the original one.
> Without the original flowfile's attributes, important information retrieved 
> before conversion (for example, file metadata) cannot be used after the file 
> is converted. I have attached 2 image files showing the attributes before and 
> after conversion. Please note that the input file has a lot of metadata 
> retrieved from Amazon S3 that does not exist on the new flowfile.
> I believe that like most other NiFi processors, the original attributes 
> should be copied to new flowfiles.
