Read O365 Excel

Can we read excel file using read range activity from UiPath.Excel.Activities package if o365 Excel is installed on machine instead of Excel 2016?

Hi @Sudarshan_Bhikane,

I think Yes, you can read an Excel file using the Read Range activity from the UiPath.Excel.Activities package even if you have Office 365 Excel installed on your machine.

  • The UiPath.Excel.Activities package uses the Microsoft Office Interop libraries to read and write Excel files, which are included with Microsoft Office installations, including Office 365. So, if you have Office 365 Excel installed on your machine, the Read Range activity should be able to read Excel files without any issues.

  • However, it’s important to note that the Excel file being read must be in a compatible format for the version of Excel installed on the machine. For example, if you’re using Office 365 Excel, the Excel file being read should be in a format that is compatible with Office 365 Excel.

  • In addition, it’s also important to make sure that the necessary Excel permissions are set up properly, such as the file path and file access permissions.

Happy Automation, Cheers!
