How to open Outlook mail attachment (Excel) without saving

Hi,

is there a good reason why you don’t want to (temporarily) save the attachment?

Typically UiPath can read files (Excel/Csv/Txt/Word/Pdf/etc) very easily with specific activities once you have downloaded them. Seems like a big effort to open a file to read it. It is much less complicated to just read it in the background.

I recommend saving every attachment (temporarily) to read it. Decide if you want to move the files to a more permanent location or delete the files again if you don’t want to keep them.

Hope this helps :wink:
