Read same excel at the same time by multiple robots

Hi together,

i’m not sure if that could happen at all, but at least it came up to our mind.

We store our Config files from ReFramework not in the UiPath Project itself. We store it at a centraliced place so we don’t need to publish processes again if we just adjust a small part in the config.

If we run the same process on serveral servers, can it cause problem because of multiple users accessing at the same time the same config excel file? Or does the read range activity support this?

Hi @schwarzp

Yes it would cause a problem since multiple bots are accesing same file at same.time

U had to create a locking system such that one robot can access the excel file at a time

Hope it helps you

thanks for your answer, but accessing the same “status” file would not do the job, because there can be multiple users accessing it too.
