Other Info

I’ve verified the connection to Excel works properly as I can get workbooks, download them, copy them, etc. as seen here:

Here’s what happens when I try to add a worksheet:

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 0.157.1
  • Database you’re using (default: SQLite): MySQL
  • Running n8n with the execution process [own(default), main]: own
  • Running n8n via [Docker, npm, n8n.cloud, desktop app]: npm

I just tested it, and it works fine for me. Did you try setting the Workbook ID with an expression? Since you can list the workbooks, you can grab the ID and put it with an expression in the meantime.

Looks like that did the trick for what I needed! It didn’t work for Worksheet > Get All with the ID specified, but Get Content with the specified did work. Thanks Ricardo!
