Increment by 50 rows and create new excel for each

Hi,

This is regarding splitting excel workbook into different workbooks depending on row count reaching 50 rows.

Eg . A workbook has 100 rows
Then, Excel would split the 100 rows into 2 workbooks each having 50 rows.
The trick is that it can be 2 rows to 100,000 rows workbook. It is not constant. So, im trying to find a way to count the number of rows and then a way to open a new excel and paste the rows.

Request ideas and suggestion to implement this scenario in uipath please.

Thanks
Sara

Hi, see this code for the idea of how to do it:

private static List<DataTable> SplitTable(DataTable originalTable, int batchSize)
    {
        List<DataTable> tables = new List<DataTable>();
        int i = 0;
        int j = 1;
        DataTable newDt = originalTable.Clone();
        newDt.TableName = "Table_" + j;
        newDt.Clear();
        foreach (DataRow row in originalTable.Rows)
        {
            DataRow newRow = newDt.NewRow();
            newRow.ItemArray = row.ItemArray;
            newDt.Rows.Add(newRow);
            i++;
            if (i == batchSize)
            {
                tables.Add(newDt);
                j++;
                newDt = originalTable.Clone();
                newDt.TableName = "Table_" + j;
                newDt.Clear();
                i = 0;
            }



        }
        if (newDt.Rows.Count > 0)
        {
            tables.Add(newDt);
            j++;
            newDt = originalTable.Clone();
            newDt.TableName = "Table_" + j;
            newDt.Clear();

        }
        return tables;
    }

Thank you for your reply. Is this a code I can put in an activity or is this a macro in excel?
Thanks

you can put the code inside the funcion in an Invoke Code (C#) activity with arguments:
OUT name: SplitTable=> List(Of DataTable)
IN name originalTable => DataTable
IN name batchSize => Integer
Try it and if you have too much trouble i help you out.
