Excel Add-Ins not loading when using Excel Application Scope

There is an issue with Excel Application Scope where some of the Add-Ins do not load using the activity. I wanted to offer a work-around for now until the issue is able to be properly address. If you use a “Start Process” to open your Excel file, let it load, and then do an Excel Application Scope (with the same file name as the start process) and un-check “visible” in the properties, you should be able to connect and interact with the file that has Add-Ins.

Worked for me, let me know if you have any issues or questions.


Good idea, but also fails. Still no addin available.

Sorry I missed to update here. My issue was that there was an EXCEL.exe open in the background. Closed that and in it worked, so yeah this is the solution here. Thanks.
