Hi @mohan2

Hi Lakshman,

I need the cells in excel to be colored ‘RED’ wherever the bot encounters “FTP ERROR” in the cell. Can I have a solution for this…There are headers in the excel file.


  1. use Read Range activity to read data from Excel and will give you output as dataTable.
  2. Then use For Each Row activity to itreate that dataTable.
    ForEach row in dataTableName
    Int Index =
    row(“ColumnName”).Tostring.equals(“FTP ERROR”)
    Then use Set Range Color activity and specify color and cell range.

If it is ‘C’ column then range should be “C”+index.Tostring

I have a total of 14 columns…“FTP error” can be any column…should I do separately for 14 columns?


Please check below thread and find attached xaml file for your reference.
