Select Range


Selects a specified range from an Excel spreadsheet, in order to perform further actions. Can only be used in the Excel Application Scope or Use Excel File activities.


Note: Strings must be placed between quotation marks.
  • DisplayName - The display name of the activity.
  • Range - The range to be selected. Only String variables and strings are supported. The field is mandatory, however, you can now assign a variable to the range, which can be null. In this scenario, the error "Input value cannot be null" will be thrown at runtime.
  • Private - If selected, the values of variables and arguments are no longer logged at Verbose level.

Example of Using the Select Range Activity

To exemplify how to use this activity, we have built an automation project which also includes a Select Range activity. The process opens an Excel workbook and displays the range specified by you. You can check the example here.
