Hi @sunnyabhash

Seems to be a compatibility issue. From my research on the error, this may occur because of a large file size.
Also, found some steps that may help:

Thanks Ovi… But i already tried it and did not get sol. for this issue. Is there any other way around to solve this .

Hi ,

Can you check below link


Thanks Sanya for Link but i am just executing macro under excel application scope in UI path . This is working in 2016.2.6379 and i am facing this issue in 2017.1.6435 build. The BOT is earlier working in trial version and when i moved the code in licensed version i am facing this issue.

same problem here all of a sudden


can we have more details? it would be perfect if you can share the workflow and the text excel file
if not, tell us at least what activity is throwing this error, and on what kind of excel file.

same error i was getting after new version of UIPath.
for me after saving file again i.e. SaveAs worked for me.

This error generally comes when your excel file is corrupted. Try to open the file manually and save it again, This will work fine after that.

I am also facing the same error after updating to latest version. I think there is some issue in latest update as the new feature auto save is here. I think after running macro when uipath saving file , the file is getting corrupt.

i am also getting the same issue while copying data from one excel and past into another.

Did anyone find any solution for above issue ?
