Hi @v-litu-msft,

Thanks for this video, but it cannot 100% help my case. it is useful for many things on excel.

I could be more specific;

I tried to use desktop recorder to click "Refresh All" then close excel command, the issues are 1- Close excel command does not wait for finalising refresh queries, just save and close the file (I will create flow for 30 different excel reports, each reports refresh time is different, I cannot find the solution for waiting until end of the refresh process...) 2- Using desktop recording excel has to run visible, I want everything will be done invisible...
