Hi All,

I am using BalaReva Excel activities version 17.0.0 to rename few worksheets in 2-3 workbooks and copying all worksheets to a new workbook. while generating the workbook1 and workbook2 I am using rename worksheet activity and changed all the sheet names in Workbook1 and workbook2.

But when I am trying to copy these two workbook sheets to a new workbook I am getting the below error.

Copy To File : That name is already taken. Try a different one.

Getting this error for the second workbook.

Workbook1: ASheet1, BSheet1, CSheet1
Workbook1: ASheet2, BSheet2, CSheet2

Thank you for using the package. The error says while you are coping the sheet from workbook1 to workbook2. New worksheet now should not exists in the wrokbook2.

Currently I can not update the latest version in the UiPath Go. It has the problem for updating the package. Already I have reported to UiPath Go .Here you can get the latest one.


Inside it has video for the filecopy activity.
