How to work with Data Table in Ui Path

Data Table activities are one of the most important activities in Ui Path. Using Data Table activities you can maintain big pieces of data in Data Table Variables. Ui Path gives us a wide range of Data Table activities which can be used with Data Table variable.

Let’s consider a simple scenario where we will create a Data Table which have two columns “Country” and “City” and the Data Table have multiple rows of  data. Then we need to sort the Data Table in ascending order based on the “Country” column values. Last we will display the Output in a message box.

Step 1: Create a new Flow Chart then add a Build Data Table activity to the Flow Chart.

Step 8: After adding Sort Data Table activity we need to go to the Properties panel of Sort Data Table activity. In the Properties panel we need to add Input Data Table variable which should be same as Output variable of  Build Data Table activity , add Output Data Table variable (We can use same Data Table variable for Input and Output), input Name of the column which we want to sort and need to select the Order of sorting Ascending or Descending.

Activity coverage

Step 9: Next we need to add Output Data Table activity which will convert the Data Table to a string.

Step 10: Now in Properties panel of Output Data Table activity we need to add Input Data Table variable and Output Text variable for storing the output as string.


Step 11: After Output Data Table activity we need add Message Box activity for display the output as a text message.

Message box

Step 12: Next in Properties panel of Message Box activity in Text section we need to add the variable. The variable should be same as Output text variable of Output Data Table activity.

Skip Costly Rework with Dynamic Change Resiliency​

Change resiliency is imperative in ever-evolving IT environments. Our patented object action framework streamlines change management by assigning object definitions to your shared assets. The same object may be used in a thousand automation steps, but it can be easily updated by making one simple change to the model definition. The change automatically propagates to every single instance where that object may have been used without a single line of code or manual human involvement. For more change readiness you can also engage our Impact Analysis for SAP to predict how changes in SAP transports will affect your business processes.

SOAIS Blog – Nuts and bolts of Certify Database Maintenance​

One of the key thing, which is often missed by the organizations, who have invested in using Worksoft Certify for automating their Business Process Validation initiatives, is implementing a Database Maintenance Plan. While the business and the test automation consultants get excited about the shiny new thing that they have got and start building the regression suite; planning and executing a database maintenance plan for most of the customers gets pushed down the priority list. However, since all the test assets in Certify are stored in a Database, a robust database maintenance plan is very important to maintain smooth operation of Certify with acceptable performance criteria. The customers usually start facing issues once they have built significant number of Certify processes which they have started executing on regular basis. Such executions add a lot of data to the tables storing results data and increase the overall size of the Certify database.

Technology has evolved to the point where we can deploy capabilities that connect at multiple levels to extract different types of process insight. In the past, organizations were forced to spend enormous energy extracting data manually from different applications and databases. Then, they would have to use things like spreadsheets to transform the data and convert it into meaningful information.
