Relative cell reference in excel using numbers



Hi there,

Is there a way to specify relative cell references for the “Set/Get” actions using numbers instead? Kinda like how it works in Excel Macro.

For instance, if active cell is A2 and I want to get or set cell value; 5 cells to the right and 1 up, we can specify relative cell reference to be [5,-1].

The only way in the current version of RPA Express recorder (Version 1.1.4), is to use multiple “set active cell” --> “Cell to the right” and then “Cell above”.

Wouldn’t a relative cell reference in numbers be more efficient/faster to process? It certanly will lessen the work when setting and creating actions while developing actions/processes when we need to use data in Excel :slight_smile:

I also do not want to use absolute coordinates, as I use relative cell references to loop through an Excel file.

On the other hand, thanks for the amazing work you guys at WorkFusion are doing!

Kind regards,

Calvin Tran



Thanks for your idea!

As a workaround, you can place the Set Active Cell inside the Repeat loop and set the number of repeats.
