Hi arajan37,

Is it possible to share that .csv file. As when am trying to save data in note and rename to .csv all values are automatically converted in row and column. So if you can share we can do R&D and give you some solution
Hi Rajan,

in your situation you have to change the value of semicolumn delimiter in Import CSV code stage.

1. Goto Excel VBO Object
2. Goto Import CSV page
3. Open Code stage and goto code tab
4. there you will find "Textfilecommadelimiter = True <--- change this to false
5. there you will find "Textfilesemicolumndemiliter = False <-- change this to true
6. save it and refresh the process and run it

that's it

hi bro
in case i have excel file and now want to save it as csv file.
if we do it in excel, we will open the file >> save as >> we select the csv(comma delimited) (.csv) >> save
when we open this csv file, all the data format remains the same as it is in the excel file.
so, i want to do like this with blue prism steps. (save excel to csv and data format remains unchanged)
can you please help advise which actions and steps to do ? (save file.xlsx as file.csv)
could anyone help me ... :(


hello bro
now i can save the file excel into csv , and the data format remains unchanged. however, there's an error happening.
that is, when i open this csv file, there's a message popup saying: this file extension and format did not match ..., and i need to select yes to open it.
i don't want to see this error message :(

Hi junjie,

for this you have to write a VB code in Code stage.

1. create a new page in Excel VBO object
2. add code stage
3. create 2 input parameter (Excel file full path with .xlsx or xls, CSV file full path with .csv)
4. in code paste below code
Dim ExcelApp As New Application
Dim ExcelWkb As Workbook


ExcelApp.DisplayAlerts = False
ExcelWkb = ExcelApp.Workbooks.Open("filepath\filename.xlsx")
ExcelApp.DisplayAlerts = True

Catch ex as Exception
      Throw ex

End Try


hi bro
the Excel VBO object is created by the service provider (of blue prism), and seem not allowed to make any change on this object.
is this the only way we can do ? or ...
Hi ,
you can create new page under Excel VBO object itself. if its not allowing you to create new page then you can create new object and use this new object in process


the thing is this object is always got locked and edited by someone, always at any time, so i need to wait when i can open and save as another object :(
because it has many pages that if i create new it wont know how to do it (since it has initiate, action order for it to function)
