    Excel services allows the user to perform various operations on an excel sheet by creating a C1 Web API service application. Split excel file feature allows the user to split an excel file from storage to multiple excel files and save it into storage.

    Your client application sends an HTTP request to the Web API service application. This request uses GET and POST methods to seek a response from the service. While, GET method retrieves the intended information from the resource specified, POST method submits the data to the resource.

    To split an excel file using output path and output names, you need to use a GET method. You can specify the request URL, as

    GET: http://<host>[port]/api/excel/{excel path}/split
