Hi @aksh1yadav,

I am getting error SelectorNotFoundException.Could you please look into it.

Main has thrown an exception

Source: Click on ‘Create from file’

Message: Click on ‘Create from file’ : Cannot find the UI element corresponding to this selector:

Exception Type: SelectorNotFoundException



It is a selectors problem basically. check with UIExplorer :slight_smile:


alt +N action is not working for after opening the excel by excel application scope.
Can you please help me ?



Is it possible to specify the cell in which we want to embed?
