Hey guys, I have created a workflow that I want to apply to many files on excel.
I tried to use the xlsx wildcard but I want to edit specific ranges of rows. For example I need to select specific range of data ( same on each file) and then process. As wildcard consolidates all data I cannot select the range dynamically. As such I have created a workflow that applies to only one file and need to dynamically replicate that to all the others which are in the same folder.
This is a great scenario to create a macro. You can add a control parameter and action tool that are connected to the Input Data tool. At the end you can add a macro output. You can then save this as a macro which can be used in another workflow. You can use a directory tool to feed in a list of file paths into this macro and process each file independently which would accomplish the specific range processing that you are looking for.
ok that makes the task easier as you then don't have to dynamically find out the sheet names. The learning resources @BrandonB provided will help to learn batch macros. This community link showcases the solution I believe you need (Batch Macro with file paths).
