Handling a file in a shared folder

Hello everyone, could you recommend some way in which I can manipulate an excel file that is in a shared folder and that at the time the robot is executed the file may be open by another user on another computer, with the restriction that I cannot use a copy of this file

@Juan_Esteban_Valencia have you tried using workbook activities instead of Excel activities.

Hey @Juan_Esteban_Valencia
As you said, if you can’t use copy of the file due to restriction , there is no way you can update same file… This is by the design is created, if it is used, you can’t update.
However you can create a copy of same file in same shared folder. And update it with newer data post your data manipulation.
