Need an example on Comma Separator or using split function

Hi All,
I need an example workflow on comma separator using split function.

Scenario is like. i have an excel sheet with 3 columns and 5 rows . now i need to split these data’s using comma separator. please if you have any workflow example share me or is there any logic on split function how to do please tell me .


use excel application scope and read range activity to read the excel data as a datatable.
Then use for each row activity and inside that for each column if you want to split use the following in an assign activity.

row(0).Split(New Char() {","c})

This will return a string array. You need to declare a variable and use it.

Hi @sarathi125 I’m getting Array index out of bound exception. i have attached my excel sheet and workflow can you please check it where i have done wrong. i’m trying to display all the data in excel sheet. Main.xaml (11.5 KB) Test.xlsx (8.2 KB)

Hi @Kiran_Bg,

You are getting all the row count of the data table and using that to read the excel column value.

As per the excel you have only 7 columns, but rows 9. so when you are trying to read row(rowCount) it refers to 9th column which is not available in the input data.

i need to fetch the data based on the count , because if i add extra columns in excel then i don’t need to change the code. What ever may be the column based on the columns or rows count i need to fetch the data

Then use dataTable.Columns.Count instead of rows count.
Do you want to get data extracted from each column in all the rows?

Yes , i want to get data extracted from each column in all the rows.

i have tried using datable.coulumns.count but same exception is coming .indexOutOfRange Exception. Please help me On this

Hi Kiran,

You want to split or combine columns using comma?
Split is to get individual values of a already comma seperated string.

Please clarify your requirement.
