Solution :
Step 1 – Read data from excel column and assign a output variable – Read Column Activity
Step 2 – Convert the ienumerated output variable to comma separated string – Assign Activity
Step 3 – Connect to database – Connect Activity
Step 4 – Pass the string variable to the extract query – Extract Sql

SQL – “select * from abasir.profile_correction09042019 where account_id in (” + strAccountID+ “)”
strAccountID – converted string variable
