Why don’t you filter the results using Filter DT before writing it @copy_writes?

can you please explain I tried it but am not get the result if you don’t mind can you explain? it

Before you write your Data Table to the Excel, use a Filter Data Table activity to apply filter on the Date column and remove the value Date from the Date column (use contains). After filtering, the values would have been removed!

Hope this helps, @copy_writes.

I did like this but am not get the result

I am working on this file

When am using the filter i get this

its not delete the last three
Timesheet.xlsx (9.7 KB)

@copy_writes Can you try Writing the Output Datatable to a Different Sheet ?

@copy_writes, please give this, a go: Filter_DateColumn.xaml (5.8 KB)

The usage of contains makes the DT empty since all the rows contains the word “Date” so, I used a not equal to condition (!=) in Filter Data Table.


Hello make another variable for filter output and write that variable in write range

Hello @copy_writes ,

Since you write on the same file from were you read data, might be better to remove all the row from the Excel file, than put the filtered data there.

Before writing to Excel, you can use a write cell activity with null value to clean the Excel.

It’s just an idea, I am using this usually to write in the same data source, but empty, with all values removed.

I hope it helps.

this also be a solution but we have to put one some activity to delete entire row and column write this also be a great idea thank you very much

Try using Balareva activites as below
Find - It finds text inside excel and return the cell info as array and row index as array

Delete Rows - It deletes contiguous Rows inside excel sheet.

If you don’t know the range, leave it with double quotes. It will use the used range.
