Hi @sharad.kesarwani,

Did you try the same sequence for a different excel file? Was it working?
If not, can you upload a copy of excel which you are using so that we can re-produce the error and see what is the Root Cause of it.



Hi @Vikas.Jain

I tried with other excel files too, but still it is giving same issue with all files.



Could you please update the packages if available? and give a try after that…


Hi @ddpadil ,

No update available yet, i uninstalled and installed Excel package again but still issue persists.



then please upload your your workflow including excel sheet.


I rebooted the system and error resolved , thank @ddpadil and @Vikas.Jain for your suggestions. :slight_smile:


I’m doing the excercises with Lesson 9 and are having the exact same exception when I created a second sequence for Excel read/write activities.

And just like you, the reboot system solves the problem.

I have also found that kill the “UiPath Robot” in the thread will solve this issue.

I think this is a bug that Excel is not properly cached or closed after being used by the robot.
