The error message you are encountering, “That name is already taken. Try a different one,” typically occurs when there is a naming conflict or an issue with the sheet name in the Excel workbook you are working with. It’s possible that the sheet name “User Logins” already exists or there is a naming conflict within the Excel workbook.
To resolve this issue and successfully copy a chart from an Excel file to a Word file in UiPath, you can follow these steps:
Check Excel Workbook:
Open the Excel workbook you are working with in Microsoft Excel.
Verify that there is no sheet named “User Logins” already in the workbook.

In UiPath, use Excel activities to copy the chart from the Excel workbook.

Ensure Unique Naming:
If you are generating a new Excel sheet or Word document, make sure that you are using unique names for them to avoid naming conflicts.
Implement proper error handling in your workflow to handle any potential issues that may arise during the copying and pasting process.
By following these steps and ensuring unique naming within your workflow, you should be able to copy a chart from Excel to Word without encountering the naming conflict error. If the issue persists, double-check your Excel workbook and the names of the sheets and documents involved in the automation to identify any naming conflicts.
