Hi @Pablito,
Thanks for the quick reply.

But this issue can reproduce when you run following process.It’s not random.

  1. Create Excel file
  2. Input “=DATESTRING(NOW())” to two cell(A1 and B1).
  3. Use UIPath and command “ExcelApplicationScope” to open Excel file.
  4. Error will occur absolutely.

If you have any further questions, please let me know.

Thank you.
