Find position of a cell

Hi Robosapiens,

Stuck on a part of work needed some urgent help.
Any leads would be highly appreciated.
My Problem statement is :
For example :

Suppose there is a excel sheet with data starting from say A7 , so the headers are on the line A7 the headers can be ex. cost, unit,item,totalproductcost

I want the cell value of column name “totalproductcost”
for example i used :-

Convert.tochar(65+Dt.columns.indexof(“totalproductcost”)) this would give me the poistion of cell like E or F but i want the exact cell position of column totalproductcost, as here can be seen is “E7”

Any leads would be appreciated.
feel free to ask me anything.

Thanks !!
@Palaniyappan @arivu96 @ppr Do you guys have any idea .

For mapping int to Excel column name following is very helpfully

For Retrieving the Row and Col Index for the fist occurence of totalproductcost find starter help here:

Hi @Shikhar_Tandon ,

Here is the activity called “Find”. It has the output as Cell Info and rowindex. Like E7 as Cell Info and 7 as row index.

Try to use LookUp Range
It will give You the Cell Position in which that word present.


help me

Yes it is correct. starter help is returning indexes on Datatable base.
But in the post and also in demo comments a description is given on how to map to an EXCEL range:

  • Using the workflow from the Connect Platform (see post above) to map integer to excel column letter.
  • adding 1 to overcome 0 based Index to 1 based index

However @balupad14 gave a hint that the same task can be done within the EasyExcel Activities. So I would suggest to first check, if it will work for you or not
