Get Value from Cell
Fill the WorkbookName position with custom internal name of your Excel file. Put the worksheet name in appropriate textbox in properties window. Use the variable for column and variable for row (or enter the number of column and row) to specify the cell whose value will be retrieved.
Declare the variable for Value and put it in Output part of properties window – it will store found value.
NOTE: by default, Excel uses the A1 reference style, which refers to columns as letters (A, B, C, ...) and to rows as numbers (1, 2, 3, ...). These letters and numbers are called row and column headings.
Wizlink® uses R1C1 reference style, in which both the rows and the columns on the worksheet are numbered.
You can use the R1C1 reference style in Excel (it is useful if you want to compute row and column positions in macros). In Microsoft Excel: Tools menu > Options > Formulas, and under Working with formulas check the box to allow R1C1 reference style.
