hi @patidarsumeet1,

  1. Try by Putting a Kill Process “Excel” above excel application scope.

  2. If working in loops -Once the operation is completed - Put a Delay of say 5 to 10 Seconds between iterations.


I have try the same. but its not working with 2.8.5. version of excel. I have installed the older version again (2.7.2) and its working fine. Its looks like issue with Uipath Excel activity package 2.8.5

yes , You can Keep the Version to 2.7.2 with lowest applicable option.
