Excel file is empty when downloaded with UiPath




I am building a robot that downloads a .xlsx file and reads it.
When I run it, I get an error saying that the sheet doesn’t exist.
Apparently, the robot downloads the file but it is empty.
When I download the same file manually, all the information is there.
Anyone encountered something similar or have any ideas?


Hi @padamus7,
Check the sheet name exists or not .And Range…




@balupad14 Thanks for the reply.
That’s not the problem. The problem is that the file the robot downloads is totally empty. Just a blank Excel file.


@padamus7 What is the source to download the file and can you please share the .xaml file


@Madhavi you already solved this issue with the previous post. The reason why it downloaded an empty file, is because I didn’t add .xlsx at the end of the path file, so instead of opening that file, it created a new one with the same name and overwrote the downloaded one.
Thanks a lot for your help
