Spreadsheet loader should not automatically start batch load

Since the upgrade to Release 8 the HCM Spreadsheet loaders automatically trigger the batch data load after uploading the data to the system.
This causes just one batch running for the entire data set.
In Release 7, the upload functionality simply created a batch and didn't load it automatically.

The new system behaviour is problematic for 2 reasons:
1. Parallel batch processing is no longer possible which leads to substantial execution times when a lot of records need to be loaded.
2. A two-step approach allows for additional validation using custom reports on the HRC batch lines and minimises the risk of accidentally loading bad data from the spreadsheet.
