Excel Slicers

This bot can select one or more items or clear an existing filter on an Excel Slicer to filter data on a report or pivot table.

Top Benefits

  • 100% Accurate filtering of Excel data with slicers
  • Enhances functionality of AA Excel Command
  • Simple to deploy and use

Tasks

  • Selects one to many slicer items on an Excel Slicer
  • Clear any currently filtered Excel Slicer
  • Return information on slicers within Excel Workbook

Currently there are some Excel actions not included in the Automation Anywhere default Excel Command and are not possible to achieve with object cloning alone.

This bot allows you to set an instance of a currently open Excel workbook and perform a series of actions on Excel Slicers. This allows you to very simply filter an excel pivot output, such as a report, to the specifications of the business before releasing.

The slicer selection works with pivots generated by data from a worksheet, a database or an OLAP cube.
