Are there any known issues running Automate 9 with Excel 2013 or 2016? If I just run an Excel file, I get an error in my macro that works just fine run outside of Automate. If I use the Excel Open command the task won't move forward until the file closes.

Hi Lynda,

The Excel action opens Excel files in compatability mode. Unfortunately, in this mode, macros are not supported. You will need to open the Excel file from the Run action and use Interactivity to navigate and update the spreadsheet.
