Hi @Onkar_Nath_Sharma

You can use Create Pivot Table Activity

i can use but how…that’s my query. If you can attach the screenshot of the activity or attach an XAML file, it would be better.


Dim excel As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application
Dim wb As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Workbook

Dim ws As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Worksheet
Dim p_ws As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Worksheet
Dim rng As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Range ‘capturing the range of sheet1 ‘’’
Dim p_rng As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Range ‘capturing the range of pivottable shhet1’’
excel = New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.ApplicationClass’create the instance of excel work book’

wb = excel.Workbooks.Open(“C:\Users\sushmi\Desktop\New Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet (2).xlsx”)‘Open the excel the file’

ws=CType(wb.Sheets(“Sheet1”),Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Worksheet)‘select a sheet and activiates’

rng=ws.Range(“A8”,“F510”)‘Selects the given range of sheet 1’

p_ws=CType(wb.Sheets.Add,Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Worksheet)‘create a empty and and name the sheet as pivot table’

p_rng= CType(p_ws.Cells(1,1),Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Range) ‘Specify the first cell for the pivot table’

'Creation pivot Cache and pivot table ’
Dim oPivotCache As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.PivotCache=Nothing
Dim oPivotTables As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.PivotTables=Nothing
Dim oPivotTable As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.PivotTable=Nothing

oPivotTable=oPivotTables.Add(oPivotCache,p_rng,“Summary”,Type.Missing,Type.Missing)‘first paramenter is cache,range the table should start,table name’

‘Creation of pivot Fields’

Dim oPivotField As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.PivotField=Nothing

oPivotField=CType(oPivotTable.PivotFields(“Product Category”),Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.PivotField)‘Specfiy the coulmn name’

oPivotField=CType(oPivotTable.PivotFields(“Product Name”),Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.PivotField)‘Specfiy the coulmn name’

oPivotField=CType(oPivotTable.PivotFields(“Country”),Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.PivotField)‘Specfiy the coulmn name’

oPivotField=CType(oPivotTable.PivotFields(“Revenue”),Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.PivotField)‘Specfiy the coulmn name’

Catch es As Exception
End Try

You can use the above code using Invoke Code Activity and
make sure you change the path name, file name and column headers


Do you have any idea how to make range dynamic?

rng=ws.Range(“A8”,“F510”)‘Selects the given range of sheet 1’

Currently I am using studio version 2018.3.3.

Anyone could you please help me on this.


Hi Team

I am able to resolve the issue by passing range as string instead of object at line


can you share that code …if you don’t mind @chandrashekar_padmin

have you got the answer of how to make it dynamic ? @mashy2

Hi @Mayur_Pawar,

Please find xaml attached , please change the column name accordingly.
