Hello @mani_gem,
Have you tried to install other version of Excel activities from Manage Packages?

Hi @mani_gem,

We also have some alternatives for excel automation, if your license expires.
Under System > File > Workbook, we do have though limited activities:

  • Append Range
  • Get Table Range
  • Read Cell
  • Read Cell Formula
  • Read Column
  • Read Range
  • Read Row
  • Write Cell
  • Write Range
