HI @chandrashekar_padmin,

If you want to keep the emails(Sending Multiple Recepients) in CC or BCC,mention the emails like below in text file and pass the text file variable(Create variable type as string) in CC or BCC .

For Kill Process,use Kill Processa activity and mention the “Excel” in Process name field.

Hi Rajesh,

So manually i have to give ; to each email and paste in text file?
Also what if i don’t have exact email id , i have first name,last name how can i convert into email for all of it?

Hi @chandrashekar_padmin,

If you have email id’s in excel or text file in line by line ,first convert them in to the format in which i have mentioned in my first post…

For converting use the below xaml:
Mail Format.xaml (5.1 KB)

Use string manipulation to create email.

Hi Rajesh,

I tried this and working fine . can you please share me xaml or power shell code for declaring the variable. I am bit confused … i have saved the .ps1 file and tryin to run from power shell itself not uipath.
I am not very sure of how to do a power shell scripting

How you are sending email,using which activity?

Hi Rajesh ,
I am using powershell code as given by Lipika as i wanted to use the same format as in excel like this. :slight_smile:

I have no idea on Power Shell scripting ,but reading the email file(variable as String) and assigning in Mail as attached for your reference.

Mail Format.xaml (5.0 KB)

Hi Rajesh,

Hello @chandrashekar_padmin,

Kindly check this ans for passing the sender email address in the variable.

and for closing the excel you have to append the below code in .ps1 script

And It will be better if you can add all the email addresses in a single variable and then pass that in shell script.
The above link will help you to achieve that.

In case you need any help you can message me.

Thanks & Regards,
Lipika Porey.

@Lipika_Porey After copying the data ,how we will execute power shell script,I see second step if we got that particular error then only we need create a bat file.To check whether the error is coming or not how i can proceed?


I got it ,run the script with “Run Power Shell Script Activity”.
But i got this error:
“Run power shell script: One or more errors occurred”
Please check the code i have copied:
$x1 = New-Object -comobject Excel.Application
$UserWorkBook = $x1.Workbooks.Open(“C:\Users\Desktop\ ReportValidation.xlsx”)
$UserWorksheet = $UserWorkBook.Worksheets.Item(2)
$rgeSource.Copy() | out-null
$Outlook = New-Object -comObject Outlook.Application
$Mail = $Outlook.CreateItem(0)
$oDoc = $Mail.GetInspector.WordEditor
$oRange = $oDoc.Range()
$oRange.InsertBefore(“Hi Team,”)
$oRange.InsertAfter(“mail body”)
$oRange.InsertAfter(“Thanks & Regards,”)
