Hello @u322805,

Can you see if this helps?

Why not just do this with regular Activities? Simpler and easier to manage.

Thanks for your reply

Below code worked for me

Try
TextReplacement = Nothing
Dim ExcelApp As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application
Dim WB As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Workbook
Dim WS As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Worksheet
Dim shp As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Shape
Dim Old_Str_Text As String
Dim New_Str_Text As String
ExcelApp = New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application
WB = ExcelApp.Workbooks.Open(filePath)
WS = CType(WB.Sheets(sheetName),Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Worksheet)
WS.Activate
WS.Range(β€œA1”).Value=CompanyName
WS.Range(β€œE2”).Value=Address
WS.Range(β€œE3”).Value=ZipCode
WS.Range(β€œE4”).Value=Tlf
WS.Range(β€œG3”).Value=VATID
If TeleFax<>"" Then
WS.Range(β€œH2”).Value=TeleFax
WS.Range(β€œG2”).Value=β€œTeleFax”
End If
For Each shp In WS.Shapes
Old_Str_Text = shp.TextFrame.Characters.Text
New_Str_Text = Old_Str_Text.Replace("{Company Name}", CompanyName).Replace("{Country}", CountryName).Replace("{VAT Text}", VATText).Replace("{Month}", MonthYear)
shp.TextFrame.Characters.Text = New_Str_Text
Next
ExcelApp.DisplayAlerts = False
ExcelApp.Visible = True
TryCast(WB.Sheets(sheetToDelete),Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Worksheet).Delete()
WB.SaveAs(fileName, FileFormat:=51)
WB.Close
Catch e As Exception
TextReplacement = e
End Try
