Find Row in Excel and copy/paste data from each cell into pdf

Newbie here and I’ve scoured the Web trying to figure out how to do this.

All I am trying to do is searching an excel table based on user input data and extracting data in each cell of that row and putting it into a pdf. I can’t seem to figure out how to “find the row, and then proceed to copy each cell as a saved value”

Any help will be greatly appreciated

You don’t copy/paste. Use Read Range to get the data from the Excel file into a datatable. Then use For Each Row in Datatable to loop through the rows. Inside the loop do the steps you need to do for each row.

I strongly suggest doing the free online UiPath training. It covers basics like this.

Filtering the data table to only show the rows you are looking for could be done with
the select method. and many others.

assign activity.

dt_filtered =“name = ‘Zachery’”).CopyToDataTable

this would make a new data table called dt_filtered which only contains the row where
column name is equal to Zachery.
then your could easily print it with the method postwick explained above my comment.


  • Read the excel to a data table
  • Get the value from user
  • Look up that into the data table
  • Assign the complete row to a datarow variable
  • Now you can get each cell value from this data row variable

Please find attached workflow. Here I assumed that user input data related to the first column. Try this and let me know for any changes (38.1 KB)


While a perfectly valid solution, for a beginner it may be better to use the Filter Datatable activity.
