Data to xls file



I am trying to use the write to excel node.
It does not flash out any error but data are not written in the designated sheet.
Since I do not have excel installed but just open office at the moment, would that be the problem?
I saved the file as an xls, older version I think 2000.

The overall goal is to have a list of dwg file contained in a Revit file there.


99% sure that is the issue. Try writing to CSV and opening that in open office as a work around.


Hi @Uaifestival

You missed “StartCol” input.


@JacobSmall is right.

Dynamo actually needs to open the excel file to alter it, it can’t just alter the file.


thanks guys. Great information.


Let us know if you have any hang ups with the csv workaround.
