Looks like you are using the relative path. Since it says that it is being used, my question would be are you opening the file by the workflow like with an Excel scope, then trying to use Workbook Read Range? The Workbook activities don’t let you have the file opened even if you just want a Read Range. However, you should be able to use the Excel Read Range in a scope still.

Well that was my initial thought.

I would also verify manually that you open the file on another machine as Read/Write, instead of “Read Only”. If the file is Read Only then it’s definitely still being used somewhere. You could check Task Manager under processes and kill any Excel instances just to be sure.

I hope this helps identify your issue.



Thanks for the reply. I will check and get back to you.
