Problem with a error content Excel

Hello, I got a error while working with Excel application scope, the error is: HRESULT 0x800A03EC.

The problem is that my Excel file got some content problem, so I just need to click “Yes” to open it anyway, I added the click in a parallel but the robot still crash and give me a error.

Excel error: We found a problem with some content in ‘…xlsx’. Do you want us to try to recover as much as we can? If you trust the source of this workbook, click Yes.

anyone had this issue? Tried to search around, there lots of thread about the error “HRESULT 0x800A03EC” but nothing compared like this one sadly.

We can use any activity we want inside the excel application scope and those would get performed even though this pop up comes up
But next to this excel application scope use a KILL PROCESS activity and mention the ProcessName property as “EXCEL”


To avoid this we can directly use WORKBOOK activities instead of EXCEL activities which has the same set of activities that lies under excel package

I still need to use a Excel Application Scope to read the file and then export it as Workbook, but the Excel Application Scope crash directly, it’s won’t try anything inside this.

Then for even reading or for getting data we can try with workbook activities

Cheers @MaxyArthes
