Hi

Hope the below steps would help you resolve this

—use a excel application scope and pass the filepath as input and from that activity get the output with a variable of type Workbook named Out_workbook

—then use a assign activity like this to get the sheet names

Arr_sheetnames = out_workbook.GetSheets.ToArray()

Arr_sheetnames is a variable of type Array of string

Or

You can try with custom activities

Using “get workbook sheets” within an Excel scope should get you all the wanted names without opening the workbook.

Excel scope actually opens it, though.

Indeed, just noticed it opened it too fast for my eye to catch it. My bad !

Hi @anishakotian400

please use the below in assign activity

YourVariable(Type)XLWorkbook=new ClosedXml.Excel.XLWorkbook(“yourfilepath”)
YourVariable(Type)IXLWorksheets=Workbook.WorkSheets

It will list all the sheets without using excel application Scope!

You can actually make it Ina way not opening excel file by disabling VISIBLE property
