Read-only access to workbooks that are already open in Excel?

excel

#1

I would like the workbook acitivities to be able to read from files that are already opened in Excel. This is not possible when using Read range activities etc. Since they only need to read from the workbook, they could be able to access the file through read-only in some way?

This would make it easier to read data from Excel while working in studio at the same time without having to close the workbook each time before running the workflow.

Works fine if you’re using the App Integration->Excel activities (ExcelScope) instead of File->Workbook

Yes I know but that’s another type of integration. I want to use the file access activity, it’s much simpler.

This is not a biggy! Just something you can add to the Backlog :slight_smile:
