"Excel Application Scope: Error opening workbook. Make sure Excel is installed."

Keep getting this error when trying to use the “Excel Application Scope” activity. Not sure why this suddenly started happening as I never changed any settings or anything. I tried reinstalling Studio and MS Office but still run into this error. Other Excel activities seem to work so it’s weird that it’s saying Excel is not installed when it clearly is…


Recent version of UiPath has Repair tool for MS Office. Can you try this?


uninstall excel package
and install it again.
It happened to me and this resolved my issue

Just tried this as well but the issue persists and I still get the error. Is there a specific way I should be running the repair tool?

I have tried this as well and it didn’t resolve the issue

Try using the Workbook activities. It should work.
