@akshaygm12 if you want write result in same sheet it will be easy, u want that method?

i want to write the sum into another excel sheet .

Have you gone through the UiPath training video regarding the excel activities? If not, you can go through it once to get a better understanding of using excel with UiPath.

As for this question, I’ll save you the time.

  1. Use “Build Datatable” activity with the columns you need–name, breakfast, dinner.
  2. From the input excel sheet, find the cell from where you need the table. Let’s say the “breakfast” row starts at A3. Use Excel Application scope and use the “read range” activity to fetch both the rows you need ie ‘breakfast’ and ‘dinner’ as a datatable.
  3. Use for each data row to take the sum of the row values.
  4. Use Add data row with the datatable you built earlier.

ok thanks :slight_smile:

Try it yourself first. If you’re not able to, let me know. I’ll create a workflow and share it with you.
