When reading from empty cells variables take default values

I have a test with variables which were assigned default values. This test is used in a suite where the variables take values from an excel. The problem arises when the excel has some empty cells, since the variables instead of taking the empty values (as indicated by the excel) take the default values

Thank you for your report, currently the default behavior of data-driven executions is to use the value from Test Data. I have opened a feature request on Github for ease of tracking.
