ExcelInstanceHandle

Hi

I have a PAD flow that opens several Excel worksheets

When I enter an Action for example 'Close Excel' or 'Get first free row on column' I get this error

Is an InstanceHandle different from an ExcelInstance eg %ExcelInstance15%

If so how is an ExcelIstanceHandle found or what needs to be done so the Flow doesn't error?

Can you share a screenshot that shows more of the code screen?

The ExcelInstanceHandle error shows at Action 110

Try giving the full network path of P: drive in the format \\server\share.....

That could be the reason for the ExcelInstance16 not getting generated at line #99.

 

You will get the path in the box where you map the network drive.
