Returning Excel Cell Value

Posted on by 14

Hi All,

I'm wanting our chatbot to ask for two values, work out a resulting value, then provide the answer. Simply eh!!!

So far I have managed to create a flow which takes these values and adds them into an Excel worksheet. The worksheet then does the calculation. All good so far.

What I am struggling with is getting that answer from Excel back to the chatbot. Any ideas?

As an example, the values in cells A4 and B4 come from the chatbot entries. I now want the chatbot to give value D4 as the answer.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Lee

    Hi @lascough20,

     

    You could use a list rows present in table action with a filter on the Load and Angle fields and use the chatbot entries as input. After that you can return the Slip field value of that matching row.

     

    Have a look at this Read from Excel PVA example:
