Excel conflict names

Hi, my name is Alexandre and I have built a bot that opens and updates an Excel spreadsheet. I am using the “advanced Excel” resource and, til some time ago, it was working fine, but now a problem is happening and I can not use the bot anymore.

When oppening the Excel file, a message “conflict names” appears and if I try to fill a name, whatever it be, it is not accepted and message persists. If I cancel, Excel closes and bot fails.

I have found other topics about this problem, but none of them has a solution, but I could not accept this, because it is surely an AA problem. When oppening the file manually, there is no problem, just through the bot it happens.

Please, could you really help me solve this?

Thanks in advance.

Hey @Alexandre 9533 ,

Can you please check and share below pointers : 

  • Check the Excel advanced package whether it is set to default or not.
  • Can you please share the screenshot of the excel open as well the error that you are getting.
