Yah that’s possible
We can filter while getting the mail from get outlook mail activity itself with Either using
“[From]=‘Username’ “
“[SenderEmailAddress] =‘’ “
In the filter property of get outlook mail activity property panel


Once after getting the rows in a datatable
We can filter it with
In filter datatable activity pass the input datatable and get the output with a datatable variable
—inside pass the columnname with double quotes in column field and mention the condition and pass the value with email id between double quotes
For more details on that

Or with select method
Yourdatatable = Yourdatatable.Select(“[yourcolumnname] = ‘youremailid’ “).CopyToDatatable()

Or if with variable then

Yourdatatable = Yourdatatable.Select(“[yourcolumnname] = ‘ “ + yourvariableName.ToString + “ ’ “).CopyToDatatable()

Simple isn’t it @Tiji_Johny

Kindly try this and let know for any queries or clarification
Cheers @Tiji_Johny


Yes its possible.

  1. Use Read Range activity to read excel data and store output in dataTable say ‘DT’.

  2. Then try below select query to filter data.

          newDT = DT.Select("[ColumnName] = '"+emailVariable.ToString+"'").CopyToDataTable
  3. And then use Write Range activity to write resultant data into excel file and pass “newDT”.

Hi @lakshman

Thanks for the reply.

The email ids i receive each day is different , i need to copy

  1. row with distinct email id in separate workbooks(separate workbook for each distinct id) and
  2. rows with same email ids in separate workbook.

If you want to find the distinct email ID rows then try below expression.

              distinctRowsDT = DT.Default view.ToTable(True,"EmailColumn").CopyToDataTable
