im trying to implement the following:
I have an Excel File with 2 columns of information (only numbers).
I want to compare the numbers of every row and, depending if number 1 oder number 2 is greater, substract them or add them in a 3rd column (that I still have to add).
How can I do this with a variable that goes “from row to row”, so that I dont have to do an if check for every row on its own?
My basic take so far - to understand what I mean:
Any tips are welcomed!
Welcome to uipath forum
Hope the below steps would help you resolve this
Use a excel application scope and pass the file path of the excel as input
Inside the scope use a read range activity and get the output as dt
Now use a FOR EACH ROW activity and pass the variable dt as input
Inside the loop use a IF condition like thi
Convert.ToInt32(CurrentRow(0).ToString) > Comvert.ToInt32(CurrentRow(1).ToString)
If this is true then it goes to THEN block where use a assign activity like this
CurrentRow(2) = Convert.ToInt32(CurrentRow(0).ToString) - Convert.ToInt32(CurrentRow(1).ToString)
Or if it’s false then it goes to ELSE block where use a assign activity like
CurrentRow(2) = Convert.ToInt32(CurrentRow(0).ToString) + Convert.ToInt32(CurrentRow(1).ToString)
- Then after this for each row use a write range activity and pass the variable dt as input and enable ADD HEADERS property
For example, workflow will be the following.
Hi, thanks for your quick answer.
If I try this, I get “CurrentRow is not declared as a variable” message.
I also tried “row” as it is stated in the foreach row block.
As which kind of variable do I need to declare CurrentRow?
Also, can you explain why those Conversions are necessary? since the rows are already only numbers (except the first one, the header)
It depends on your for each row activity
If you have row as variable name in for each row activity then we can mention as row(0).ToString
If the for each row loop has CurrentRow as variable then we can mention as
And we need to convert the values to int32 as when we use read range activity it will get all the column with the data in string type only
Hope this clarifies your query
I have used excel activities to do the comparison between two cells in each row and write cells adjacent to each row based upon the result of the given condition.
