Problem with reading words from excel

Hi all,

Could someone please help me with the following problem?

OS: Win10
PsychoPy version: v2020.2.6

What are you trying to achieve?:
I am trying to read words from an excel file and present them one by one in a random order using Builder.

What did you try to make it work?:
Here is the experiment I created:

Here are shown the settings of the text component (I also selected ‘set every repeat’ as shown in the figure) and the loop (it seems to recognize that I have 5 conditions and one category ‘gesture’ in my excel file):

What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
When I run the program, it just get a grey screen without any text for about a second.
I have tested that the ‘hello word’ examples from Psychopy documentation work correctly.

Thank you already in advance if you can help me with this matter!

Best regards,
Maria

I managed to implement this with coder view.

Best,
Maria

This is definitely something which should be possible in Builder, do you get any error messages?
