Open Spreadsheet + Set Active Cell does not work inside loops - 1.1.6



I upgraded to version 1.1.6 to solve the bug, but i still have the same error than in the version 1.1.5.The bug was reported and I thought that the new version will fix that.

But I still have the same error, I only can run the script one time in a loop the second time in the loop it stops.

Also i have reinstalled the 1.1.4 version and then my scritps works fine.

Here images of the error in the new version (1.1.6):



You can drag the Open Spreadsheet action outside the For Each loop - no need to open the same file many times.

We are planning to fix your case in the nearest time.


I need to get the data from an excel document and use it on a web page.
I have to do it several times since each row of the document is a new process of the web (with different inputs).

How should I do it with version 1.1.6?



I am having the same issue. Tried to mimic the variables and loops training video. Does not work after the 1st cell is set. Using version 1.1.5.


I have the same problem.

Other point. I have been creating a condition (If-else), comparing two rows in Excel. In my computer and control tower it work well. But when I developed the workflow inside control tower, with all my projects and it stopped to recognize the conditions, true or false was the same (always false). My intention is schedule the workflow.

Can't use action library "loop" well

Ohh thanks, I just installed a VM on my computer in order to use the 1.1.6 version and the 1.1.4 version at the same time.

If the fix works, this will be better than using a VM.

I will try it tomorrow. :grin::grin:
