Hi @Neha Mathapati​ ,


The session names should be the same for excel open to excel close and other excel related actions as well


Please check the Company control room excel package version and community excel package version.?

Hi @Neha Mathapati​ ,


Could you try creating a Local Session Variable and try passing that in instead?


Kind Regards,

Read the error message "Session Already Exist". I believe you are working with more than 1 excel file, when opening the 2nd excel using Excel Open action you must be getting this error. Make sure every Open Excel action should have a unique session name.

I changed the excel package version, now its running fine. Thanks @Tamil Arasu​
