Using send hot key activity for control + space


I am trying to use the “Send Hotkey” activity and do control + space in an excel scope to select an entire column. When I try to do this the activity does not do what is supposed to do.

Hi @Sahil_J_Patel

Why do want to select the entire column, can you tell the requirement.


I want to format the numbers in the column a certain way.

Are the activities in the image in an “Excel Application Scope” activity?

Yes, they are.

May be we can try without UiAutomation based on your requirement. Could you please share your input format and expected output format ?

use " " instead of space. However if you would like to format an entire column why not use the For Each Row in Data Table to traverse through each row in the column?
