Excel created then recalled not being read correctly

The process I’ve created is to extract certain primary keys and files from an inbox and then input those same keys/files into a webpage.


  1. Create Excel with primary Keys (get mail, read range, add row, write range)
  2. Create folder and save any attachments from email into the folder by primary key (get mail, for each, create folder, for each, save attachment, Assign Directory.GetFiles if images are available, save files
  3. Input primary keys and attachments (Application Browser, excel scope, for each, click, type into, click submit)
  • The excel scope here is recalling the file created in the beginning
  • When it recalls the excel I can see the primary key data extracted from the beginning (file is originally blank) but it isn’t reading the excel file as if it has data, it is still reading it as if it was blank.

Any idea as to why?
