Reading xls data with GEL column-by-column, instead of row-by-row

I am in the process of modifying a gel script that I have to make it read data from a xls file column-by_column instead of row by row. I was hoping that someone with experience doing this could maybe point me in the right direction as far as what would be the best way to acheive this.

Below is the code I will be modifying:

<!-- Attributes part -->
<sql:query var="obs_details">SELECT * FROM [${p_worksheet2}$$]</sql:query>
<core:forEach trim="false" items="${obs_details.rowsByIndex}" var="obs_row" indexVar="i">
<core:forEach var="attColumnName" items="${obs_details.columnNames}" indexVar="j" step="1">
<core:when test="${j==0}">

<core:set var="division">${obs_row[j]}</core:set>
<core:when test="${j==1}">

<core:set var="platform_group">${obs_row[j]}</core:set>

<core:when test="${j==2}">

<core:set var="supply_platform">${obs_row[j]}</core:set>

<core:when test="${j==3}">

<core:set var="team">${obs_row[j]}</core:set>
