Thanks for the reply. However, i am having an error below. May I know Why? Thanks

Source: Read range

Message: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

Are you using two excel activities in the workflow?

If not simply open the excel once and close it again manually… it might not have closed properly!

I have restart my computer and open the file again and i got the same error. I guess the problem is within the code. I will look into it. Thanks.

Make sure your excel file isn’t open while your robot it running!

Would be even better if you could upload it.

In write cell activity put
“'” + varCardNumber ,that is preceed your number with single quote! that’ll make excel recognise it as text!

Let me know if it works!

Hi Sir,

It is still the same.

It is still the same


You have to put ’ between the double quotes!
" ’ " ,spaces are only to make you understand,do not give spaces! :slight_smile:

Thank You Sir !!
