Variables Not Showing Under Use Variables -- New To UiPath

Hello, I’m brand new to using UiPath and have started the MyUnicornName. I’ve run into an issue where the saved variable from Excel does not show under the “Use Variable” portion for the email.

The first screenshot is the portion inside Excel where I pull from the webpage.

I can’t attached a second screenshot but it does not include any variable and only shows “Outlook”.

I’ve watched a few videos on this and I don’t believe I’ve missed any steps. Any help is appreciated.

Here are a few things you can try to resolve the issue:

  1. Check the variable scope: Make sure that the variable you are trying to use is within the same scope as the email activity. Variables can only be used within the scope in which they were created.
  2. Check the variable type: Make sure that the variable you are trying to use is the correct type. For example, if you are trying to use a string variable in an email, it should be a string variable and not an integer or a boolean.
  3. Check the variable name: Make sure that the variable name is spelled correctly and matches the name of the variable you created.
  4. Check the Excel package version: Make sure that you have the latest version of the Excel package installed.
  5. Use output property of the read range activity: You can use the output property of the read range activity to pass the data to the next step, and then use the output variable in the email activity.
  6. Restart the UiPath Studio: Restart the studio and try again, sometimes the variables are not loaded correctly and a simple restart can help.
  7. Contact UiPath support: If none of the above solutions work, I recommend reaching out to UiPath Support for further assistance. They will be able to help you troubleshoot the issue and provide a resolution.

Hey! Thanks for the response, what seemed to fix it was creating a variable on the bottom within the variable section and not using the + icon next to the textbox. Not sure what the difference is.

Thanks for your reply!
