Delete Range

Overview

The Delete Range activity uses the Microsoft Graph ClearRange (when Shift is None) or DeleteRange (when Shift is Up or Left) API to delete a range of cell data (Range) from a specified workbook (Workbook) worksheet (SheetName).

How it works

The following steps and message sequence diagram is an example 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 the Delete Range activity inside the Microsoft Teams Scope activity.
  5. Enter values for the Input properties.
  6. Run the activity.
