Excel automation is a technique for using a program to carry out tasks automatically without any manual assistance. Excel automation generally involves building code to interact with Excel and automatically perform tasks. Before we continue with the piece, please read more on Excel Automation Here.

You can use robotic process automation, or RPA, to incorporate Excel tasks into automated processes.

All of the processes that Excel can complete on its own can be accomplished by robotic process automation. It is capable of reading and writing all file types that Excel supports. RPA can also effectively analyze data and produce in-depth reports at the same time. RPA can then be installed by businesses on their computers to function like Excel software.
