Filtering of excel data

Hi team,
I have a workbook application. In that I have different companies information. I want to filter that one like same company information in one sheet… I can’t use data filter activity… but i wrote one workflow for that it gives warning workbook application must be updated for the links… I’m not getting how to filter that information…


You can extract le sheet in a DataTable and assign :

ArrDt = MyDataTable.Select(“company =‘Uipath’”)

ArrDt is an array of DataRow

NewDt = ArrDt .CopyToDataTable

Why you are not using Filter Data Table activity?
So if you want to skip first row
then using for each row-
-Remove Data Row
It will remove your first row
Then u can use Select method or Filter Data Table

I can’t follow the steps and also I don’t to remove the 1st row… just I want to skip the row to read from the 2nd row …

Hi @amala443

Why don’t you try the Filter Data Table like below.



If I will use filter data table only one data table will come… I want the data tables which are equal to different company names which are I’m having in my excel data…

For Each Company Name You can use filter data table
Say For A company
Input :- MainDatatable Output:- AComp
In columns: “Company Name” = “A”

similarly for B
Input :- MainDatatable Output:- BComp
In columns: “Company Name” = “B”
