How to read excel by rows fastest?

Hey Maria! I don’t know if I understood very well, but I believe the long time is due to multiple read cells!

You’ve already read the entire table and already have the information for this cells, so instead of the read cell you could use
If CurrentRow.Item(4).toString.Equals(numFile)
Assign CurrentRow.Item(8).toString

Dear @Maria99

  1. For verifying “210” is in Excel ColumnD, you can make use of LINQ query. Output will be boolean datatype.

  2. Query to extract all the values from the row.

Refer to the attached workflow.

Master.xls (37 KB)

Unfortunately I can not see the activity. There is a problem.
But try to set this type for your variable:

@Dawodm It error.

And you tried with System.Data.DataTable?

@Dawodm error.


Can you please share your excel file. Because your statement is wrong. You search for the column name but this statment to search for the content of the column. So no column has this input.

Please try it as follows.

Dear @Maria99 ,

NumFile.ToString is a variable in your assign statement,


Replace with the above statement.

Here you have to set your variable instead of 210

@Dawodm If use for each row , it take time more to run.

Because I have data about 100 rows.

Then try this statment:

Please let me know if it works for you
