Does AutoMate have the ability to set Excel properties like font size/type/formatting (bold, italics, etc), cell formatting, cell merging and other such tasks? I have a user wanting to automate a moderately complex Excel report that they currently create manually but I'm not seeing how automating it will be feasible.

Hi James,

Automate does have the ability but not within the Excel action. To accomplish what you have outlined would involve using Interactivity actions to navigate the spreadsheet in a similar fashion that you would manually to make these changes.

Do you have any examples or samples of such tasks?

Hello James,

Unfortunately we do not have samples that specifically interact with excel spreadsheets in the manner you are describing. However, if you look at sample tasks within your AutoMate software, you will find sample tasks demonstrating the interactivity actions and what you can accomplish with them.
