  • DisplayName - The display name of the activity. This property supports String variables and string formatted values.
  • DataTable - The table to insert. This field supports only DataTable variables. To get the DataTable variable, create a table using the Build Data Table or Generate Data Table activity and use its output property variable.
  • Sheet Name - The name of the sheet to which data is written. This value must match the name of an existing worksheet, otherwise, an ItemNotFound error is thrown. This activity doesn't create a new sheet if it can't locate the name specified in this property. This property supports String variables and string formatted values.
  • StartingCell - The address at which the top-left cell of the table is written. Enter the address of a single cell in A1-style notation.This property does not support a range of cells (e.g., "A1:A5"). This property supports String variables and string formatted values.
  • Workbook - The DriveItem of the document to modify. This object can be retrieved using the Find Files And Folders activity. Use the output property variable from either the Find Files and Folders (First or Results) or Create Workbook (Workbook) activities. When using the Results output property from the Find Files and Folders activity, be sure to specify which item in the array that you want to use (e.g., myWorkbooks(0)).
  • Private - If selected, the values of variables and arguments are no longer logged at Verbose level. This field only supports Boolean values.
  • IncludeHeaders - If selected, the data table's headers are also inserted into the workbook. This field only supports Boolean values (True, False). The default value is True.

How it works

The following steps and message sequence diagram is an example of how the activity works from design time (i.e., the activity dependencies and input/output properties) to run time.

  1. Complete the Setup steps.
  2. Add the Microsoft Office 365 Scope activity to your project.
  3. Add an activity or run an external process that outputs a DriveItem object (e.g., Find Files and Folders, Create Workbook, Copy Item).
  4. Add an activity that outputs a DataTable object (e.g., Build Data Table, Generate Data Table).
  5. Add the Write Range activity inside the Microsoft Office 365 Scope activity.
  6. Enter values for the Input properties.
  7. Run the activity.

    • Your input property values are sent to the UpdateRange API.
