Execute Macro from Personal Macro Workbook

Hi all,

I am trying to use the Execute Macro activity to run a macro from my Personal Macro Workbook (PERSONAL.XLSB), but I encounter an exception, which I’ve included below.

My input field for Execute Macro is as follows, where “JobsheetExport” is the macro name:


Here’s part of the error message (if the full message helps, I can post that too):

Message: The range does not exist
Source: Execute macro
Exception Type: ExcelException
UiPath.Excel.ExcelException: The range does not exist —> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Cannot run the macro ‘C:\Users\Daniel\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART\PERSONAL.XLSB!JobsheetExport’. The macro may not be available in this workbook or all macros may be disabled.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Put single quotes before C and ! in file path. The file path should be “‘C:\Users\Daniel\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART\PERSONAL.XLSB’!JobsheetExport”


Hi Rohit,

That did the trick, worked perfectly! Thank you. :slight_smile:


Hi All,

I am trying to use the Execute Macro activity to run a macro, but its showing error while run as:
“The range does not exists.”

I use excel application scope in which I browse file in which micro created.
and then use execute micro in which I give macro name.


Hi @AmolS

You may have solved this already, but if not, can you attach the workflow you are using, or a screenshot of the Execute Macro activity?


Thanks for your help.
Now its working and problem is resolved.

Hi everybody

I’m trying to run an Excel macro in format XLSB too, with two variable arguments. I couldn’t find the way, to send these arguments to the macro, despite one argument is well sent.

Another issue I have, is that the macro execution is run twice, even we the macro contains just a message.

Does anybody knows, what can be wrong.

Macro execute activity:

AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART\PERSONAL.XLSB’!Formato_original_activar(" + Code.ToString + ", " + variable.ToString + “)”

Public Function Formato_original_activar(code As String, variable As String)

MsgBox code

MsgBox variable

End function

Many thanks

thank you very in advance !


To avoid exception like : HRESULT, we need to change trust center settings for that excel.


I am trying to run a macro from UiPath. However, I am getting an error saying ’ The range does not exist’. In the excel scope, I have given the workbook name and then within that an execute macro function with the macro name in quotes (“Macro1”). Thanks for your help.
