Activate Worksheet Action—Setting Properties

The Activate Worksheet action is used to activate a worksheet in a workbook that is open in an AutoMate Excel session. An Excel session must be created in an earlier step using the Open Workbook or Create Workbook actions.

Note: You must have Microsoft Excel licensed and installed on your system to use any of the AutoMate Excel actions.

To set Activate Worksheet properties

  1. From the Task Builder Available Actions pane, open the Excel folder and double-click the Activate Worksheet action or drag it into the Steps pane.

  2. In the Session name box, enter the session name. If your task has only one Excel session and you did not change the default session name when you created it (recommended), you can use the default entry.

  3. Select Worksheet by name or Worksheet by index, and then enter the value in the corresponding box. The default worksheet names created by Excel are Sheet1, Sheet2, and Sheet3.

  4. To set the Description tab properties, refer to Description Tab Options.

  5. To set the Error Causes and On Error tab properties, refer to Step Error Handling.

  6. When finished, click OK to save settings and close the properties dialog window.
