Open an excel file with Open workbook


I would like to open an excel file and show the excel application. The problem is that I didn’t find the “Open Workbook” activity (I have Excel package installed). Does anyone have a clue about why this happening ?

we don’t have any open workbook activity
u should use excel application scope to open excel file

In this tutorial, there’s an activity called open workbook

Because they were either using older version or they have installed V7 compatibility pack

It was available in previous versions only.I am not aware with latest version it will support even with compatibility pack or not.
But i have this one.
This activity is only available with V7 compatibility pack. So install this package then restart UiPath studio and check it.
