Hi @Varunkumar_Saikumar
Hi use LookUp datatable activity for your scenario

Using lookup datatable activity u can lookup a value in the datatable in a particular column and then extract the corresponding column ie of url column corresponding to that row

Try that

Make a dictionary with key as “Name” and value as “URL”.
You can easily access the URL then by using the key

Also you can try with Filter Datatable and later you can use as Dt.Rows(0).Item(“ColumnName”).ToString

Hope this may help you

There are multiple ways you can achieve this, below is my solution hope this helps.

Read the excel as data table ( URL_DT ).
Now if your Bot is getting input save it in a String Variable ( TargetName ) exmpl= twitter or yahoo etc
Use Linq query to get the Row Index of twitter as an example -

create a Integer variable and assign this Linq Query which will return the Row Index Number of your searched Company name which you need to pass using “TargetName= twitter” variable to this LINQ query.

Int Index = OutDT.Rows.IndexOf((From row in OutDT.AsEnumerable Where row.Item(“Name”).ToString.Equals(TargetName) Select row)(0))

Now use this index to get the value from URL column in DataTable

String varURL = OutDT.Rows(Index).Item(“URL”).ToString

Note: If you have duplicate company name in excel file it will return the first one from top as we are using (0) in LINQ query output.

Thank you guys for the help
