Its been a little while. Hope all as been well here in the community.
I currently have a process that reads an Excel document. This document is filled out by a user and later read by the robot. From time to time the user will copy and past data from one excel document to another which then includes an external link in the document the robot reads (User shouldn’t do it this way but it happens from time to time). Due to Microsoft Excels built in features, a warning box is displayed asking the user if they would like to update the documents… etc. This can cause the robot to be hung up for hours (15 hours last night).
I’ve thought of adding an element exists to the Excel Application Scope but the message is thrown at the Workbook Open and the process hangs before entering the scope. So this wont work.
I’m using UiPath.Excel.Activities 2.7.2. Is there a feature I can build into the process that can timeout? Anyone else face this issue in the past?
