How to choose a random cell in an excel sheet



Hi there.

I am experimenting with excel and Uipath. I am sending several emails, but I want it to randomly select a new subject line in every email. How do I manage this?. I have 9 different subject lines, but I can’t get it to randomize/choose a new one very time :-/.

Best regards,




You can keep your 9 subjects in a dictionary with integers as keys and subject lines as values. And then use a random variable (new Random.Next(1,9)) to fetch the random subject value.

@Prakshi_Tyagi"[dept] = ‘account’ ").CopyToDataTable()

In above statement how can i give array variable which contains different values in place of “account”.


Awesome. Thanks. I will try :slight_smile:


@Prakshi_Tyagi: Thanks for sharing workflow reference, but I am facing error while uploading your randomSubject.xaml file in my UIPath Studio.


@Vinay.Pandey may be that is due to version of uipath
