Can we use Powershell script to fetch data from excel and pass (Loop) the same in UiPath for ‘n’ number of rows?

hi @nole_1
you can invoke the powershell script using uipath

but is there any reason behind to use powershell because uipath have all the necessary activities to work with excel.

Hello Ajay,
you can find often established and consolidated scripts in different business units of a company. They were developed by engaged business experts and work very well. Depending on the complexity, I would always integrate the existing script in the first step. This has in my experience different reasons, the most important are:

  • The scripts work, why should I do the work?
  • The motivation of the colleagues would decrease. With an integration I show the value of their work and increase it. That grows them up and open it for RPA.

Best regards

Hi @StefanSchnell

I understood your valuable points.

Just i wanted to know reason and also my concern is with development effort and communication between powershell script and uipath…

As a developer i will follow your point of view.
