About the Excel Automation with the Modern Experience in Studio course

This course covers automating one of the most widely used business tools—Excel. We'll go through the different ways to work with Excel and associated files (.xlsx, .xls, .csv) using the specific methods and tools that UiPath Studio offers. We'll also introduce a type of variable meant for working with Excel files, and databases, the DataTable (System.Data.DataTable).

However, if you are using a different version of UiPath Studio, you can still work with the required version activities by updating the related project dependencies, particularly the UiPath.Excel.Activities 2.16.1 package version.
