Hi @shyamkalaskar I had the same issue recently and it was related to the VBA code in the file. So if the file you are trying to open is .xlsm then I found a workaround which was to tick the reference ‘AccessibilityCplAdmin 1.0 Type Library’ under Tools>References in VBA and after that was done and saved, the Excel Advanced: Open error stopped.

Hi, be sure that you have the excel file which you mention in OpenExcel command. then you may try restarting controlroom service, and try again
