SAP Intelligent RPA Can't open Excel using Cloud Factory Process

Hi All,

Currently I have a process I developed in Desktop Studio which requires the use of Excel activities within the workflow. When I run my program through the Studio everything is ok and completes successfully. However, when I publish and upload my package to the Cloud Factory and try to run my process through the agent the process fails and seems to get stuck on opening the Excel file or Initialising the Excel activities. Here is my error:

Step GLOBAL.SUP.Execute_Header_activi: Error, [] Failed to open excel workbook. '_excelApp.WorkBooks'

Does anybody have any idea on why this is occuring, any help would be appreciated thanks!

Best Regards,

    please check how you define the path for the excel file. If you store the excel in a folder of your project the excel file will not found via an execution from the factory because their is a new folder structure on you machine for the executable code.
