Hi @kavyashreeh22,

Found the mistake
in sample file the headers starts at A1
and you have given from a2,x20 this is why you getting the error as field names are invalid

Plz Correct it and run again



Hi Sanjay,
Thanks so much, its working fine now.
Can you please tell me how we can assign a sheet name to the sheet where the pivot table is generated. It assigns as “Sheet*” by default.
Also, how can we pass the arguments to the code? Like filepath, sheet name etc.


Hi @kavyashreeh22

To add a new worksheet to the workbook use this code:

var xlSheets = xlWorkBook.Sheets as Excel.Sheets;
var xlNewSheet = (Excel.Worksheet)xlSheets.Add(xlSheets[1], Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing);
xlNewSheet.Name = "newsheet";

// Uncomment a line below if you want the inserted sheet to be the last one
//xlWorkBook.Sheets.Move(After: xlWorkBook.Sheets.Count);

To save the workbook call Save() method:


And yes you can pass an argument in the invok e code editor

Thanks, but my question is, this Pivot table will be generated in a separate new sheet and will be named Sheet1, Sheet2 etc. Is there any way we can specify the sheet name while generating the Pivot table?
Also, how can we read this pivot table using UiPath? Using excel read range, I am getting below error,



Hi @kavyashreeh22,

Naming of the sheet is possible using the worksheet.Name property for more details i have provided the details please check in the below link

coming to Read pivot Using i believe yes we can.just for the demo can attach some pivot file

Hi Cheersrpa, @cheersrpa

Please add a new variable to the Workflow of the type (Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel).

Save the file and run, it will work fine.
