Excel application scope - Data link properties error

Hello

I have a problem with my robot automation and I do not know if it is in fact UiPath problem or Excel… I have to copy about 60 big excel files (almost 30 MB each) from one directory to another, then brake all links using excel application scope and execute macro activity and finally each file has to be moved to chosen folder. Everything I did works, but (!) when my robot is running for one file it is showing Data Link Properties window (if I check Visible Thumb.db excel is also showing) :frowning: If I am using try catch that window is displayed, but after clicking OK or Cancel it still works great, but without it UiPath is throwing an exception: Excel application scope : Exception from HRESULT: 0x800A03EC. I don’t know why this window occurs, I tried kill processes and set connection but nothing works. Files are really similar to each other, so I don’t know… Any help? I fight with this from couple of weeks…
