First post from a noob here.
This is what I want to do
Read data from an Excel workbook to a datatable variable.
Do some looping (the logic is not important here) and update the last column of the datatable. This uses an assign action like row(“Result”) = some string value.
Use write range to output the updated datatable to a new Excel workbook
Sounds simple. My problem is that it just hangs at step 3. I have to kill Excel with task manager.
Using Output Data Table to view the updated table as a string shows that the last column is correctly updated.
When investigating, I found that writing to new workbook works Ok when the datatable is unchanged. This suggests that the issue is because I have updated the datatable and perhaps changes need to be commited?
I also tried the following:
A. Use a clone of the datatable for write range. This doesn’t hang, but the data does not contain the required changes.
B. I added an Invoke method to call the AcceptChanges method on the datatable before write range. This still hangs.
Help much appreciated
