Hi welcome to the community!
To filter we have Filter Database Activity, so you can remove all found, delete the original range and write the new one, that will ‘delete’ those lines in excel.

Yes correct.

Could you please explain me briefly.


  1. Read the Excel File using WorkBook Read Range Activity, Output will be a Datatable

  2. Use that Datatable in Filter Datatable Activity in this way

  3. The Output Datatable will have rows that you need.

There is also a Possibility of not getting the Output, If you haven’t got the Output , Notify us :sweat_smile:
