Get Cell Color



Uses the Microsoft Graph Get range format API to retrieve the color properties of specified cells (CellAddress) in a workbook (Workbook) worksheet (SheetName). After retrieving the color properties, the activity returns the cell color (Color) as a hex value (e.g., # FFFFFF).

  • DisplayName - The display name of the activity. This property supports String variables and string formatted values.


  • Cell Address - The address of the cell. 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.
  • Sheet Name - The name of the sheet from which data is read. This property supports String variables and string formatted values.
  • Workbook - The DriveItem whose data is read. 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 supports Boolean values.


  • Color - The color of the given cell, in HEX format. Required if you plan to use the output data in subsequent activities.

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 the Get Cell Color activity inside the Microsoft Office 365 Scope activity.
  5. Enter values for the Input properties.
  6. Create and enter a String variable for the Output property.
  7. Run the activity.

    • Your input property values are sent to the GetRangeFormat API.
    • The API returns the String value to your output property variable.
