Hello Mina-san
I tried to open a Excel file via Uipath and then edit some date. but Had a Runtime Execution error" concern to Excel. How can I solve it?
Please see the following contents for detail:

Instead of Excel we can use workbook activities…

Can we try with workbook activities?

Try this and let me know…

For now, can you try to use RepairToolforMicrosoftOffice as the following?

Depending on the results, it might be necessary to re-install ms office.

thank you for your suggess. i used wb activity and could edit data.

Hi Tien-san,

I just wonder which version of Excel do you use?
(The extension of the file is “xlsx” or “xlsm”?)

If you use Excel lower 2003, I am not sure that version is supported by Uipath.

I hope following could be helpful for you;
