generalExeption with Microsoft Excel


i have an issue to send data to Excel.
I get an general Exception ... from this error I cannot see what i need to change.
I can select the right excel sheet and the right worksheet ... assign the fields but writing the data does not work.

Hey @niels.przybilla!

We reviewed your workflow and identified that in the "Add Row To Worksheet" action step there are double quotes in the "Column G (Res3 Field Data)" value which is causing problems.


To address this, we have implemented a workaround by adding the "Text Formatter by Pabbly: Replace Text" step. This step replaces double quotes with single quotes. The resulting output from this step is then mapped to the "Column G (Res3 Field Data)" field. As a result of this, the "Add Row To Worksheet" action is now functioning correctly, without any errors.

Hello @Chetali ,

great ! Thank you very much for the help. So in general it would be better to not import such fields with double quotes into Excel ?

(If i do not want to use the reformater) ?

THX and best wishes

Yes, kindly try using single quotes instead of double quotes for every incoming quote data!
