Please follow below simple steps to achieve your requirement.

  1. Use workbook read range to get the column data you have to specify your column name in the range eg: B:B(if you have account number in the B column). it will give you all the values in the Account number column and store the data into a data table.

  2. Use for each row activity assign your data table. And it will help you to loop one by one account numbers. To extract each account number use assign activity and use expression like CurrentRow(“Your Acct number column name”).tostring to get the account numbers one by one. please refer the below screenshot as you requested. thanks.

It works…but It takes blank cells too from column B.thats why it running in infinite loop…
I want value upto non zero cells
