Double click Excel cell


I am trying to do a double click a cell in an Excel file.
I have a solution that is semi-functional, i do a select range and after that i do a double click using a selector that just has page information and that’s it.
Would appreciate if you could help me find something that it’s a bit more reliable.

Hi Ioana,
Are you trying to edit the cell? I ask because you can try two options. The first is to send a “Click” and have the Click Type be “Click_Double”.


The other option is to send Hotkey and use “F2”.


Just some quick ideas.

Hi, I need to double click in an existing excel sheet (present in Desktop) which only have column names (without cell data) . I am unable to double click in the cell. After double click, one new form will open and there i need to choose the value and click on OK button. The selected value will appear in the excel cell.

So, the excel sheet is getting downloaded from a website and it is present in desktop now. In that excel sheet i need to enter data and need to submit it. The excel sheet will uploaded back to the website.
