You can mention them in if condition buddy @priyankavivek

can u please give me an example like i have to compare more than two columns in diffrent excels in if condition?dt1.Select(“NB = '” +item.Item(“NB”).ToString+"’").FirstOrDefault() if i need to compare 2nd column where i should add my column name?

Using lookup datatable activity, look up your data on column1. IF there is no match, THEN lookup on column2. IF there is no match, ignore.

This example is trying to find IDs of employees from two possible columns. The output tells you in which column they have been found, or if no match was found.

Table with the output column we want to populate:

Lookup Table with two possible columns matches can be found:

Output shows where matches have been found:

Workflow: (8.8 KB)

here you have compared two colums like id and service id is it possible to make to compare more than two columns?please help me

If you want to cycle through a second column in your source datatable and compare against two columns in the lookup table, simply duplicate the For Each activity in the workflow I provided and update the Lookup Value.

how we can apply vlookup for more than 4 Columns in two different excel by considering only one column from one Excel? Please give solution.

Welcome to uipath community
In that case we need to use vb script or formula and lookup datatable activity can take only two datatable as input
To use vb script we can keep that code in INVOKE VBA or to use formula with WRITE CELL activity inside a loop
