I am not getting properly
@ppr how can be write in query please explain me


Use the below steps.

  1. Use excel application scope to open the excel file.

  2. Read range activity to read all the values into data table DT and find rowcount with rowcount = DT.rows.count

  3. inside application scope Use following excel formula =D3*-1 and use write cell activity to insert the formula in the E3 cell.

  4. Use auto fill activity to auto fill the formula in the E column so that all the negative convert into positive and positive into negative.

  5. Use copy paste range activity source → source E3:E+rowcount Destination: E3:E+rowcount and sue the method values so that all formulas will be removed from the column.

  6. again use copy paste range this time source would be E3:E+rowcount and destination should be D3:D+rowcount.

with the above steps you could achieve your requirement in the excel itself.Please try and let us know thanks.
