Excelactivitesin uipath

While using excel if we are having some data like Delhi, Bangalore in one column can we replace comma with or in Excel sheet

You can do it in multiple ways
in excel you can go to data tab on ribbon and select Text to column, then you can choose the delimiter as “,” ans then you’ll get the values splitted

in UiPath →

You can read the data using Read Range
Loop it using For Each Data Row

then for that column you can take the value in a variable, using row(“columnName”).tostring

row is the for each data row variable, can be different for you

then you can use split function

This will give you an array, that array element csn be accessed using their index
and so on

Refer the steps below.

Read Range the Excel using Read range Activity.

For Each row in datatable of read range DT

Use Assign

Currentrow(“YourColumnwithComma Separted Value”)=if(CurrentRow(“YourColumnwithComma Separted Value”).ToString.contains(","),CurrentRow(“YourColumnwithComma Separted Value”).ToString.Replace(","," or"),CurrentRow(“YourColumnwithComma Separted Value”).ToString)
