Hi @mceleavey 

 

I mean to say the attached Input excel I want the same as output and the format should also be same.

 

Thanks

Hi @Amy123 ,

 

1. for the first line, you can use a Report text tool  and you can style it as bold  

2. For the remaining data, you can use the table tool where  Headers will be tab name and tab description . You can add the background colors and text colors to it. Keep the table border condition as No

After this try  joining these both using the union tool and pass it to the Layout tool and select the Layout type as Vertical and pass it to the render tool. Hope this helps😊

Workflow:

The workflow also depends on the other sheets in the report file.

 

Hope this helps : )

Hi @atcodedog05 

 

Instead of Render tool can you use Output tool ?

Hi @Amy123 

 

Sadly you wont be able to get the formatting using Output tool.

Hi @atcodedog05 

 

So this means we cannot use a render tool and output tool together in a workflow

Hi @Amy123 

 

We can, the condition is reports output should be outputted first and then output tool output. The reason is report output always overwrite sheets.
