Hi @fairymemay,

Please try below query to get only non-matching columns when compared with the check file. Use this query in assign activity.

dt_fileCheck.AsEnumerable.Where(Function(fileCheckrow) NOT dt_inputFile.AsEnumerable.Any(Function(inputFileRow) fileCheckrow(“APAPNO”).tostring = inputFileRow(“APAPNO”).ToString)).CopyToDataTable

where dt_fileCheck - datatable variable having check file data
dt_inputFile - datatable variable having input file data.

Instead of deleting, it filters for non-matching rows, where rows can be again pasted back to the source excel file.

Hope it helps!!!

@Ramya_K It replace data in same sheet auto right?

@fairymemay we need to use write range accordingly.
Using the query we are filtering the data. Then we need to use write range activity providing the filtered datatable variable.

@Ramya_K Can you guide me with flow ?

input11.xlsx (8.6 KB)
chk data.xlsx (8.6 KB)

@fairymemay can we write the filtered data in new separate workbook ?

If no, then we need to first clear the data in input file and then use write range activity to write the filtered data in the same sheet.

@Ramya_K I want write filter data in same sheet.
