What are you using to create an excel? If you are using Excel Application Scope it would automatically create if a file does not exist

I am using Excel application scope only, when i tried before deploying it to orchestrator its working fine. After deploying to orchestrator its not creating the excel file.

Please find the error information below.

  • “Execution error : System.ArgumentException: The sheet does not exist.\r\n at UiPath.Excel.WorkbookApplication.SetSheet(String sheetName, Boolean createNew)\r\n at UiPath.Excel.Activities.ExcelInteropActivity`1.BeginExecute(AsyncCodeActivityContext context, AsyncCallback callback, Object state)\r\n at System.Activities.AsyncCodeActivity.InternalExecute(ActivityInstance instance, ActivityExecutor executor, BookmarkManager bookmarkManager)\r\n at System.Activities.ActivityInstance.Execute(ActivityExecutor executor, BookmarkManager bookmarkManager)\r\n at System.Activities.Runtime.ActivityExecutor.ExecuteActivityWorkItem.ExecuteBody(ActivityExecutor executor, BookmarkManager bookmarkManager, Location resultLocation)”
