Launch Excel Action


This Action launches a new Excel Instance and opens an Excel document.


Launch Excel:

Choose whether you want to open a new Excel document, or an already existing one.

Document Path:

Enter the full path of the existing Excel document you wish to open.

Make Instance Visible:

Choose whether you want to make the Excel Window visible, or hide it. This doesn't limit WinAutomation's ability to use Excel, just whether the user sees it.

Store Excel Instance into:

Enter the name of the Variable that will store the specific Excel Instance for use with later Excel actions. This allows you to specify which, of possibly several, Excel spreadsheet to access.


For any Excel-related Action to work correctly, Microsoft Excel must be installed on the computer where the Process will run.
