Excel “printer setup” popup

Try running the program and let me know if the pop-up opens or not.

Ugh this mean more delay for the rpa process.

Because element exist will wait quite long time when the popup not going to appear.

Check by running the Process

Will look into this first

Element exist will wait for 30 seconds only. That was not a bad time to wait.
The process will move parallel then there is not much delay.
It was better to handle the popup when triggering in between process.

Hope you understand!!

Ugh i have to test run & wait for the rpa process finish by hours due to hundreds of sheet processed hahah

30 seconds x 500ish worksheets
hmm i don’t know

Make try with it If it was taking much time then ignore that one. @wija
Test it for 3 or 4 Sheets in the excel.

Hope you understand!!

@wija

If you use modern activities then in excel process scope you have option to disable display alerts

As suggested by others default printer also might negate the issue but in all systems that is to be done…

Parallel activity willbe a good alternative and for that element exists is not needed…you can use a click with continue on error property checked…so if the pop up comes up it is handled in parallel else the remaining activity continues…there would not be any delay involved

Hope this helps

Cheers

3 or 4 sheets is unlikely the popup will appear.
for the popup to appear have to process massive sheets.

Okay got it @wija

If any solutions nothing work, then try with my solution.

have to wait the popup appear first for me to be able to indicate the element.
after that i also have to consider the delay of element exist.

Yes @wija

We have to indicate the element for element exist activity. If you are using modern activities then you can use the check app state activity.

i don’t want to use modern activities.

Then plan to use element exist activity.

actually i also in the process of trying this solution in this link (possibility 2 section):

my excel template that used by my RPA to process excel, is in page-break preview state, i change it to normal preview and save.
hope this will also works.
