go to the folder take that path and paste here in file path and run buddy @Abubakkar
It will open

Just pass the full file path into start Process activity to open the file.

what are these excel files buddy @Abubakkar

I need to open this file buddy @Palaniyappan

you want to read the file or just to the view the file buddy @Abubakkar

I want to open this file after I have some automation calculation work here

Buddy just pass the file path of the file to start process buddy that would open the file and bring that to foreground in front of the screen and from there on you can make automation you want

Cheers @Abubakkar

Were you able to buddy

yes buddy to avoid that you can use kill process with process name as “EXCEL” which can be used before start process
that would work buddy
