issue

#1

Hi,

I am facing an issue with the UiPath, It is not able to read the file or write any text file into any of the folder or local drive location.

I am getting an error as below:

Main has thrown an exception

Source: Read range

Message: Access to the path ‘C:\Users\User\Desktop\Setup\Share_Price_New.xlsx’ is denied.

Exception Type: UnauthorizedAccessException

System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path ‘C:\Users\User\Desktop\Setup\Share_Price_New.xlsx’ is denied.

I guess this is because of administration rights! Try saving it in another folder if that works for you :slight_smile:


#3

Thanks @Niket_Ghai i am having the administrative rights and also i have tried almost 4-5 different locations


#4

Is it possible that the file is being used by another app, like an antivirus? Maybe try restarting your PC?
