Excel read range Error: Compiler error(s)

I am trying to do this tutorial here UiPath Beginners Course [2021] - How to Learn RPA - YouTube

and I am stuck at 1:50:25, where we are supposed to use an excel workbook and an excel-read-range activity.

However, my read range activity does not work? I get this error:

Compiler error(s) encountered processing expression ““topics””. Option strict on disallows implicit conversions from ‘String’ to ‘UiPath.Excek.ReadRangeRef’.

Why can’t i read this simple excel file sheet?

What am I not typing properly?

Hello @Chaaza

Here the range you have provided is wrong. Click on the plus button near to field Range and select the sheet name from there.

Then it will solve the error. Can check the below image.

Hi @Chaaza ,
I would suggest you to use classic read range if you are a beginner.

It is really easy to use just use it inside a excel scope activity.
And if you are not able to find classic activities then in left top corner of activities there is a funnel option click and tick the classic activities.

Thank You,
