I get "Error opening workbook. Make sure Excel is installed"

Hi, I get “Error opening workbook. Make sure Excel is installed” when I try to make automation using excel in StudioX. I have the 32-bit of office installed.


Can you try to run Repair Tool for Microsoft Office Interop in Tools menu?



please try to uninstall and install excel package in the package explorer

Hi, I did that and it did not help.

How do I do that?

go to manage packages click on excel package you can find uninstall option there
later you can go to official and select excel package and install again

The uninstall button is greyed out.

seems to be weird…
but can you just try to restart the uipath studio and try it out again…??

I exited out and opened back StudioX and there is no change.

there is no need to uninstall the excel package.
the issue is with the office installation. did you try to run the Office repair tool ? if still no luck, try to do a repair of your office installation
what office version do you have installed?
