Using existing excel doc into excel application scope




I had automated an excel sheet downloaded and opened on my screen already and I had also automated few click actions on it. I would now like to read range the sheet into uipath for which I need to use excel application scope where I need to provide the document’s path. There is a field in the properties called ‘Existing worksheet’. Will that be of any help to directly integrate the already opened excel doc into excel application scope or is there some other way?

Hi Jai,

The ‘Existing workbook’ property uses the data from an Excel file that was previously stored in a WorkbookApplication variable. Only WorkbookApplication variables are supported. You can give the path where the downloaded excel file is located.


The path is dynamic. It would run on different machines
