2.I want to get each person details from the sheet and send an email. For instance, If I need to send details of robin in excel, the data would be

  1. Can any one please help me in the approach for the solution

Two ways:

The simplest way to do this without using anything fancy (such as extensive LINQ operations) may work this way:

  1. Load the list into a DataTable
  2. Get a list of distinct names from the email column - you could use Get Row Item to get all values of this column and then remove the duplicates .
  3. For each name on this list, use the Lookup Data Table to filter records on the email column and fetch the records into another DataTable - this would be the email, name, subject and marks of a particular person
  4. Use that DataTable as input to your email activity.

As I said, you could do this most likely in one or two steps using things such as LINQ, but that depends on how you want to approach the solution.

First Part ist about grouping data

@himadeep.movva1 - As an alternate…

  1. Read Range - Save the output as Dt

  2. For each ‘row’ in 'Dt.Defaultview.totable (True,“Name”)

  3. Inside For Each - Assign TmpDt = (From r In
    where r(“Name”).tostring.equals(“Name”))
    Select r).copytodatable

  4. Inside For each use write Range → Give your output file → for sheet name use as row(“Name”).tostring.trim.Upper → tmpDt

This will write all the students names in separate sheet in your output file…

You can read this output file where each student name is on each sheet, based on your criteria you can send email.

Hope this helps…
