UiPath Version 2020.4.0-beta.718 product review


I have been using UiPath Studio version 2020.4.0-beta.718 for a couple of weeks and within this period I found a major issue with the product as it can’t handle excel files properly.

Whether I want to read it or write it, it keeps showing error message “Exception from HRESULT: 0x800A01A8” . In case of reading the file I have to open the file to avoid the error. However when it comes to writing in a ‘new’ file which needs to be created by UiPath Studio it throws the same error.

Just wanted to mention additionally that the path provided for reading from or writing to, is absolutely correct.

Could you provide the version of the Excel Activities package that you’re using?

Please try using a previous version of the package and check if it works correctly.

I am currently using MS Office 2007 version excel file.

Could you also share a workflow example in which you’re getting the error?

It’s v2.8.3-beta.890325 version showing in my activity list.

Try updating to the stable version of the package. I think 2.8.5 was released recently
