Hello @Shanika_Perera

Whiel reading the excel you can set the range from row 3. It will help to get all yhe required data.

Then you can loop through the datatable and get each column values using the index of column like CurrentRow(0).Tostring will give you the color column.

Thank you @Rahul_Unnikrishnan
I am basically really new to UIpath. how to get the values separately for A and Separately for B etc. Do we have to group or something. Is there anything like that in UI path activities
Please help me

Like I need A details separately and for B separately. Dont need to get the all row details at one

CurrentRow(3).ToDtring will be A column.

You can use Read range activity. In the range provide A3:E6.

Then use a For each row in datatable activity.

Inside that add a message box qctivity and try to print CurrentRow(1).Tostring to confirm colors are properly selecting.

CurrentRow(1).Tostring will give all the details of that row right ? I means like below

let me try again and upload the file for you

No…it will give only the second cell value…

Index will start from “0”. So index 0 will give first cell value, index 1 will give second cell value, etc…

Dear @Rounak_Kumar1
Thank you so much. It was so valuable, for a starter like me and encouraging me as well.

If the Number of columns under ‘Product Marks’ not fixed, then how will it go. Hope u understand what I say. If we are developing it to be used by anyone, one can give the file with ABCDEF columns (‘Product Marks’ ) and another one can give the file only with ABCD columns. Is there a way that we can loop this number of columns without fixed.

Also can we use just one output table write ‘A’ details to that and then send those details in a mail with a readable format and then after that to get the 'B’s details and go like wise until it reaches end (till all ‘Product Marks’ columns are finished.) Is it a good way.

Hope you will help me to figure out this as well. Now wondering how to do this :thinking:

Once the output is fine I actually I have to learn from the beginning how to format the details as well.


Please go through this Updated one. (10.4 KB)

Note: Please don’t delete the Sheet 2 data As we keep this Reference because this is constant column(Creteria,Value) and In sheet 1 you can add multiple column like D,C,E,F…so on I made it dynamic

Please let me know, You got the output As Expected or not
