Dear Ahson,

The openxlsx package is also worth checking 
out for situations like this one.

First read the file into a workbook object, 
then read the sheet names from the workbook, 
lastly use the sheet names to read each sheet 
from the workbook using lapply:

	xlsxFile <- "hmm.xlsx"
	wb <- openxlsx::loadWorkbook(xlsxFile)
	sheets <- names(wb)
	list.of.sheet.dfs <- lapply(sheets, function(sheet, wb) {
	}, wb=wb)
	names(list.of.sheet.dfs) <- sheets


	     X1   X2   X3        X4     X5
	1  this <NA> <NA> blablabla   <NA>
	2  <NA> does <NA>      <NA>   <NA>
	3  <NA> <NA> <NA>       not   <NA>
	4  <NA> <NA> make      <NA>   <NA>
	5 sense <NA> <NA>      <NA>     42
	6  <NA> <NA> <NA>      <NA> lalala

	4 info    <NA> <NA> sheet   <NA>   <NA> <NA>
	5 <NA>  stuck    in  <NA>   <NA>   <NA> <NA>
