ITX v9.0.03 - Excel plugin: request the excel adapter be enabled to allow a map to read in a list of the sheets available in the workbook as input

We are trying to use excel adapter to read the excel file and then convert it to delimited file. We need to process the first sheet of excel file but the sheet name is dynamic and it differs every time new file is received. From documentation, we figured that excel adapter expects sheet name to read excel. Is there any specific syntax for excel adapter to accept the index of the sheet instead of sheet name?

Please do point us to location where to get more documentation around excel adapter.
