What does row("A").ToString means?

Hi I am trying to understand what does this means:

The Assign looks like this:

There is an excel sheet with column name A where they would be input some ID in its rows.

I am still learning UiPath, I am seeking some guidance, thank you in advance.

row(“IMO”).tostring means the value in the column of IMO are assigning to that variable IMO

row(“A”).tostring means fetching the value which is present in column of A


I hope you have this inside a FOR EACH ROW loop
If that’s the case with this assign activity they are trying get the value of a column “IMO” from each row using row(“IMO”).ToString and assigning it to a variable IMO

To learn more about this
Have a view on this video tutorial

Hi @Irfan_Musa

Let’s assume this is your Excel data:


& let’s say you read the data & store the value in a data table variable ‘dt_excelData’.

Once you iterate through the data table row by row, each iteration goes through the data rows available, like this:


When the loop runs for the first time, the value of the row(“IMO”).ToString will be ‘1’ & the value of the row(“Name”).ToString will be ‘A’. This keeps on continuing till all the rows are processed.

Hope this helps,
Best Regards.

row = the current row
(“IMO”) = the column name
.ToString = the format of the cell value

Take a look at this tutorial

When you get that understood, look into and refer to this post from the great @Palaniyappan

Hopefully this helps :blush:
