Update Excel table using Blue Prism Process

Hello,

The Excel file contains a table that reads another CSV file.
This CSV file has its contents updated daily at 1:00 AM.
I would like to update the contents of the table in this Excel file every morning with the latest contents.
Right now I am manually updating it by pressing the "Update" button on the Excel ribbon.
Can I do this with the Blue Prism process?
Please tell me how to do this.

Hello @sumire 

The latest version of MS Excel VBO on Dx should have actions that do what you want. I havent downloeaded yet and simply create a new action with the code one of the mvp shared (I had one but two lines of code wasnt as fancy as his code), you can see the thread here https://community.blueprism.com/t5/Product-Forum/Refresh-Pivot-tables/m-p/54710#M9187 

Hope it helps you as it help me

Hello @Daniel_Sanhueza ,

I downloaded new MS Excel VBO you recommended from DX and tried the "Refresh All" action on several files and got the expected results.
If a reliable VBO exists in DX, rather than creating the code stage myself, I would prefer to utilize that one.

Thank you!

Glad it help as expected 🙂 You're right, is always best to have a reliable VBO. But some devs cant import objects or releases due to restriction by user roles on the environment where they're working (as my case) they can create that action by themselfs and test it :).
