Csv files

When using the Read CSV command my Excel files does not appere. What might be the problem? What is a CSV file compare to an Excel file?

More details would help understand what you are trying to do; like a screenshot of your xaml.

CSV format is a plain text format in which values are separated by commas (Comma Separated Values), while XLS file format is an Excel Sheets binary file format which holds information about all the worksheets in a file, including both content and formatting.

Thanks a lot.

I opend the Excel file in Excel, saved as an csv file, and than it appered in the Read CSV browser.

Happy to advice :robot:

Sorry to bother you again.

I am watching a video
and when the «Read CSV» command is draged out the output Data Table is prefilled with a variabel named «DataTableReedCSVFile1» as default. In my window nothing apperes, see undernaith

When I try to create a variable I do not get the «Data Table» choice in the «Variable Type» selection.

It seems that there are some difference in the UIpath aplication making it difficult to get progress. I am on the Community trail Version.

Glad if you can help.

Its fine, in the older version output variables were auto created, however in the new one you create it explicitly.
Here is what you do.
Once you drag a ‘Read CSV’

  1. Click on the Output field
  2. Do a Ctrl+k, a ‘Set Name’ option will come and you can type your variable name


In you arguments tab you will find your variable of DataTable type

Hope it helps :robot:


What screen is this related to? Cannot relate.
Is this your ReadCSV property?
