Hi @Sandeep_3,
I dont want unique values from the excel sheet for each and every column .

I have unique values from the column “Account” , now I want to pass this unique value and get values from column “Referenece”

I’m looking for a select query of this sort "MasterDatatable.select [Column=Reference] where [Account=“Variable”] " .

Hi @priya_joshi_thaneti
You can get the columns in multiple way.
1- you can use “Get Row Item” Activity and in the properties panel you can provide the column name or index as you want.
2- you can simply assign the value to variable row(0) where 0 is the column index.
3- as sandeep described
Thanks & Regards

Hi @jitendra_123,

Can you please let me know the output in the case you explained ?

Im looking for a totally different output … I’m trying to mimic Excel filter operation using select query by passing a unique value to filter the excel file

which type of filter you want to use ? means what type of output you want so it will be helpful to assign it.


For example if im passing a variable which contains a dynamic variable like
account= 90009
Then I will get an output like this

I want another variable which stores the data of Reference column .
Like for one iteration Reference=GT980663
and for another iteration Reference=GT980663

Main.zip (16.1 KB)
if account no is input as string as you have mentioned in the screenshot, you can use this xaml to get the desire result.
Here i have assigned your “900009” as account value, but you can change it in assign or you can take the value of account in argument also.


Hi @syedabidraza

I would like to use add data row activity add add the data to the particluar column .Like for example Id like to add date to date column .
Rather than passing all the vaues once in an array like {AccountNumber,CurrentDate,PostNumber,ReferenceNumber,IDNumber}
I would like to add them individually .
