Modify Excel files without Excel

Suggest edit Updated on May 3, 2021

Use the new Excel File Connector to work with Microsoft Excel files in robotic automation scenarios where there is no required interaction between the user and the Excel workbook. The Excel File Connector makes it easy to automate large Excel files and provides these benefits:

  • Create, modify, and read from Excel workbooks using Pega Robotic Automation without having the Excel application installed in the environment.

  • Define ranges of data to work with, such as a table. You can define the range during design in Robot Studio or by using an automation during runtime.
