Cannot use excel from orchestrator

I built a workflow that uses excel .
when I run the workflow from studio ,it works fine ,but when I run it from orchestrator I got this error message :
Excel Application Scope: Failed opening the Excel file . Possible reasons: the file is corrupt, the file is already used by another process or you don’t have permissions to open the file

Hi Ahmad, welcome to Forum… looking at the details, I believe the issue might be with the place from where the Excel file is being used… can you confirm where the excel file is located. Another thing to check is if you are getting the same error from the UiPath Assistant/Robot tray triggered execution


The issue is with the excel where the robot is running

Better to use Workbook activities instead of Application Scope if the file is .xlsx

Hope this helps you

I tried to change file permission but , the I still have same problem
yes I tried run the workflow from assistant but I faced same problem
