I have an excel file that contains the invoice number on the first column:
What I want is to copy all of the details of the first invoice
then add those data to an another excel just like this one:
after that it will clear the table then paste the details of the 2nd invoice number:
I want to do it one at a time. is that possible?

Where The flow is based on column A, and each invoice number creates a separate sheet.
there are several options to implement it. Feel free to pickup this one most matching to your skill set:
finding index: for each row / if check and memorizing row index e.g. as the output index from for each
calculating the segment start index and length
using skip T take method for slicing the table
For each row
loop over the rows
detect when a segment is starting / ending
transfer the datarow from segment, when collecting to a helper datatable
we do know that it can be done quickly but it has to handle specifics e.g. first row, end of loop …

This HowTo gives an introductory overview of the partition Operators: Skip, Take, SkipWhile, TakeWhile
The partition operators are used to fetch a particular subset from a set of items. The returned subset is formed by the contiguous items that are matching the provided condition.
Skip / Take Operator
The Skip Operator will omit the subsequent items from the given start for a given length and will return the remaining items
The Take Operator will return the subsequent items …
It’s working for me thanks but is it possible to use another activity like while loop or of conditiomln instead of flow switch and flow chart? I tried it on my end but i’m having a hard time to use other activity instead of flow switch or flow chart since i’m just a beginner of Ui path. I’ll appreciate your help. Thanks!
Thank you for this. Will surely try this method also.
I think it’s a bit hard, You can drag and drop the Flowchart activity inside the sequence Flow.
