Save as .xlsx


#1

hello friends,
I have this problem.
When i try to save the file with the extension .xslx it saves it as a .txt file.


WHen I click on “Salva” it saves it as a .txt file.
How can I save it as a .xlsx file?
Thank you,
Camilla.

Does it do this when you Save the file “manually”?
If not and the problem is with the workflow, then I would ask are you selecting the “File type” (Salva come)? Sometimes if you don’t select the type in that dropdown correctly, it will use a different file type and maybe it’s still seeing .txt even though .xlsx is selected. If that is the case, we would need to analyze the activities you are using to select that dropdown.

However, if you are not selecting the dropdown and by default it is already set to “*.xlsx”, then I am unsure what the issue is. I would also recommend trying to add the extension to the filename when you save it.

Regards.

Thank you so much @balupad14.
The problem is that I start from a .csv file and I should save it as a .xlsx.


I should choose the .xlsx type from the dropdown list
and then save
Can you please help me further?
Thank you so much,

I don’t know if you have already thought of this, but you could take the Data Table from the CSV file (Read CSV), then use Write Range with that Data Table and you can save it to a new .xlsx file.


#11

Yes as @ClaytonM said, this method seems to be fine.


#12

Yes @CamiCat. Doing hot key method . Better we can read the data from csv to Datatable and you can write into an excel as @ClaytonM said.
