Can someone help,me?

  1. Read the file using excel application scope and read range. Store in a data table
  2. Use sort data table and sort the data table as required
  3. Or, simply you can use these statements to to separate the data tables of required types and then use those to write the data tables to the required sheets

NewDataTable = MainDataTable.Select("[Column Name] = 'Deveoper’ ").CopyToDataTable

Pleas find the attached Zip file of which i created based on your requirement.

Thank you so much Mohan, for your quick response. See the attached file of output i got. I would like have the data group to be copied to 2 different sheets. One for ‘Developer’ and one for ‘Tester’, without deleting any info. Thank you again for helping.

Follow these steps:

  1. Add Flowchart/Sequence
  2. Add Read Range, fill in the requirements, pass it to MainDataTable
  3. Add Excel Application Scope, name the new path.
  4. Under “Do” section, add Build Data Table, build the datatable, pass it to NewDataTable
  5. Add For Each Row, for each row in MainDataTable, Assign 4 new variables to the 4 columns using 4 Assign activities
  6. use an If activity, where condition is (Profession Column variable)= (desired profession).
  7. under then section, use Add Data Row, under properties of Add Data Row arrayRow, include the 4 variables u created earlier in this format {variable1, variable2, variable3, variable4}, set the data table to NewDataTable.
  8. use a Write Range, fill in the requirements. check “AddHeaders”.
  9. repeat step 4 to 8 with a new datatable variable for the other profession.
