Hi @Pramod_Sharma

You can explore to use linq expressions on your solution, here is a link you can check

Hi @Pramod_Sharma
I think u need to get sum of all quantity column values in all sheets of the workbook.

For this try this way

  1. Use excel application scope
  2. Use assign activitiy to intialise sum varaible
  3. Inside the excel scope do the following
    a. Use get sheets activitiy and store in string array
    b. Now loop through that string array which contains sheet names using for each activitiy
    c. Use read range activitiy to read the given excel sheet by passing sheet name there and store it in dt1
    d. Now use linq query
    sum=sum+dt1.AsEnumerable().Sum(Function (row) CDbl(row(“Quantity”))

So finally u will get the solution

Thanks Again for this you solved my 90% problem but still I am not able to write total in last cell of the column in each sheet i used write cell activity and also convert total into the .Tostring but in range it is not taking value properly so please help me in this.



After getting the sum Assign activitiy

U can use write cell activitiy to write the sum

Let’s say quantity is in C column of excel (consider )

Drag the write cell activitiy and add the values as follows:

Cell : “C”+(dt1.Rows.Count+2).ToString

Value : sum.ToString

It will work

yes I got your point but I do not want use “C” here i want Total in the same column which we read for sum. in the ending cell of the column

Is the quantity is in same column in every sheet

Like I had told an example with Column C

Yup but what if quantity in sheet 1 is in “B” column and in sheet 2 is in “C” column and in sheet 3 in “D” column. In that case as we are doing sum as per the header is that any way to do the total in the same column and last row of it.

Thank you so much you help me allot in this project. :hugs:

Hello Nived,

I got one query related with same project. The Total which we are printing in the last of row column can print that only total in new sheet?

Eg. Total of sheet1 is=2000
Total of sheet2 is = 1500
Total of sheet3 = 3000
Like this.
We already store sum in sum variable but I am not able write in new sheet.

Hi @Pramod_Sharma

I didn’t get your point

Can u explain it well?

Here id some example of

We got the total of each sheet now I want to print that Total in new sheet

So u want to print the complete sum of all total in the new sheet?

yes complete total of each sheet in new new sheet
as I shown in Total image
