Hi @CristianCubas

You could use Start Process activity with FileName as application path(ex. “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\EXCEL.EXE”) and Arguments as the path of the excel file you want to open.
Arguments could be an array of strings to hold mutiple file paths. Here is an example:
Main.xaml (7.1 KB)

Just wanna add one point the application path will depend on system office version
for 2013 path will be like - “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\EXCEL.EXE"
For 2007 path will be like - “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\EXCEL.EXE"

“Root” will be depden on the system user type if you are not an admin they you wont be able to see that root folder path.
