Copy data from excel and paste into another formulated excel

From SAP application, we have to download the report copy the data from downloaded sheet and paste into another formulated excel. Using of write range activity, its taking time around 4 minutes to write the data into excel…
Any suggestion for simply the time consume ???

Hi @kiransubrahmanyam :wave:

Try this:

  1. Use the Kill Process activity to close all the Excel processes before writing.

  2. If you are using Excel Application Scope then, uncheck the ‘autosave’ property and use a Save Workbook activity, inside the scope. This will ensure not to autosave the file every time, it writes something.

  3. Close the Excel file by using Close Workbook activity after writing.

This should help you! Let me know if you are facing any issues!

@kiransubrahmanyam did you try that? Did it work?

Could you please check the data format which is downloaded. The data may be have unknown or special symbols or the issue with formulated excel.
Please verify the report output data in UiPath before copy the other excel file and verify the formulas
