Write cell in Excel and merge 2 cells to write a single text

Hi all,

I’m using Write cell activity in UiPath where i want to merge 2 cells and write in it.


I want to write “Hi” in cells A1 and A2.
I want to also bold it and add colour to the cell.

Is it possible?

Thanks in advance!

Hello @Ray_Sha1
You can use Format cells activity to add color to the cells and for merging you can use vb script.

  1. paste below code in file e.g. vba.txt
  2. in excel application scope, call invoke vba activity
    set codeFilePath = "vba.txt
    "EntryMethodName" = “FormatAndMerge”
    EntryMethodParameters = {“SheetName”, “textToWrite”, “cellsToMerge”}
    e.g. {"Sheet1", "hi", "A1:A2"}
Function FormatAndMerge(sheetName As String, textToWrite As String, cellRange As String)
    With Selection
        .HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter
        .VerticalAlignment = xlBottom
        .WrapText = False
        .Orientation = 0
        .AddIndent = False
        .IndentLevel = 0
        .ShrinkToFit = False
        .ReadingOrder = xlContext
        .MergeCells = False
    End With
    With Selection.Interior
        .Pattern = xlSolid
        .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
