Reads the content of the specified cell and returns the value as an output.



  • Value - The name of the variable where the value would be stored.


  • Column - The column where the value would be read from.

  • Row - The row where the value would be read.

  • Worksheet - The name of the sheet to be updated. By default, it is set as “Sheet1”.


  • ContinueOnError - The Boolean value to specify whether to continue executing the next activities even if there is an error thrown on this activity.


  • DisplayName - Renames the activity.


For this example, this is what the sample Spreadsheet contains:

  1. Add an Excel Sequence activity inside the initial Sequence.
  2. In the File Path field, search for and select your Spreadsheet document by clicking the browse button.
  3. Create a String variable and name it output.
  4. Inside the Excel Sequence, add a Read Cell activity, and in the Value field under Properties, add the output variable.
  5. In the Worksheet field, write "Info" (or the name of the sheet you would use).
  6. In the Column field, write "A", and in the Row field, write "9".
  7. After the Read Cell, add a Write Line activity, and in the Text field, add output

    The use case should look as the following screenshot:

The output should be the value from Column A and Row 9 in the specified worksheet:
