Assign Excel Instance Name?

Hi, I would like to run another Excel data entry script using "Run Task" command. Other than assigning the same variables to another script, is it possible to assign the same Excel Instance Name as well?

Hello Rotfcoy,

OpenBots Studio version 1.3.1 allows you to keep Excel instances alive across scripts. So, instances created on a parent script can be referenced on a child script if the instance has not been closed.

Hi Roftcoy,

As of now, instances cannot be tracked across different scripts. Therefore, it is necessary to use the Create Excel Application command on every script in which the file will be referenced. We have made our development team aware of this suggestion while working with Excel instances, and they will accommodate it depending on the work items planned for the next release.

Hope this helps!
