Can I refresh excel sheet without opening the file.
Short answer is No.
But if you can explain the scenario more then there could alternatives that may help you.
Actually, dynamically data is coming to the sheet from another sheet with queries and connections.So until i didn’t refresh the sheet i didn’t get the updated data. @AkshaySandhu
Open the excel file → Goto Data Tab → You can find the Refresh button
Note - Use Get Active Window activity.
Keyboard Shoetcut → Ctrl+Alt+f5
I don’t want to open the sheet @Gokul001
Thanks for the reply
So how you are updating the excel file ? UiPath with Execute non query etc or via macros.
What i want to achieve is “Open the excel sheet->Go to data tab->On queries and connection section i just have to click Refresh All button”.By doing this my sheet get updated via the queries.
This i want to do in automation without opening the file means all these executed in background. @AkshaySandhu
Try to see whether u can do the refresh via VBA which can refresh after every regular interval
Thanks and Regards
That’s a good idea, but what do mean by after every regular interval.
try the attached vbscript file. Change extension to .vbs
Refresh_Excel.txt (470 Bytes)
use invoke VBScript activity for the same
Update: removed the test line
Thanks @AkshaySandhu for the vbscript i get the clear idea about how to do this,your script may work but i think you script time complexity is quite high it may be resolved by much less time.Anyways thanks a lot now i can solve this.
Can you explain more on how you are going to reduce the time complexity?
