Hello @Bhargavi_Lokapur ,

I hope you are using the Moden design. Plz follow the below steps.

  1. Use “use Excel Activity” and select the excel
    2)Use Read range activity and select the sheet to Read. Then provide the output DataTable variable

If you are doing this are you getting any error message? If yes can you share the error and the screenshot of the Flow which you have created.

I want to read the Sheet1. so how could I mention the sheet name in read range

I get this error

If you are using Read Range inside the Use Excel activity, then you can click on the + button and select the sheet to read.


For now, can you try other ReadRange activity, either of the following

  1. Use Excel File - ReadRange (ReadRangeX)

  2. System-File-Workbook-ReadRange


Hello @Bhargavi_Lokapur ,

Do as below. It will solve your issue.


Input string was not in correct format. this error I Got. this error

Share the screenshot of the error and plz explain the steps which you have done. It will helpto troubleshoot.

Plz open the file “New Microsoft Excel Worksheet.xlsx”, then in the Read Range activity click on the + button. Click on Indicate in Excel-> Then select the columns to read.

In the Read Range “Excel.Sheet[“Sheet1”]” is wrong …thats why you are getting this error.

Use Excel.Sheet(“Sheet1”). or Do as above.


Can you try to change ReadFormatting?

Or it might be corrupted worksheet.

Can you also try Workbook-ReadRange.


As he uses C#, Excel.Sheet["Sheet1"] is correct syntax.


i used workbook read range


Can you share your workbook, if possible? It’s no problem dummy data or deleting confidential information, if we can reproduce the trouble.
