How to number the item in excel (containing repeat)

Hello everyone, thanks for help.

I have a serial number problem that I want to number the item ,

but it’s not just serial number. like this image .

Three item (X Y X in column C) , because item doest emerge just once ,

so I need to use line item(column B) to count the item.

Serial number will be the same in same item(column A)

I want to use UiPath to generate column A and column B. Thanks

Hi @lojyehuang,

you need to print Line item and Serial number based on the item right
Can i know the source of data ? where u getting the data and what include in it ? then we can read that data and based on that data we can build the logic how to read and write in the excel outcome you want

HI @SamanGuruge

The thing I have just the excel . Now I can solve this problem by invoke VBA and write formula in the excel .
Look at this . But I want to use Uipath to solve this problem, too. Thanks!


Hi @lojyehuang.

Now understood Luckily you can do this using UiPath.
just you need to pass Items as source
