Hi,

I'm not quite sure what exactly you want to do? Could you please explain your problem in more details?

Anyway, if there is no Excel installed on target machine, Ranorex cannot use excel files as data connectors. As for opening/editing excel files from Ranorex, it may be possible with some kind of 3rd party plugin (e.g. EPPlus). But if you want to use Excel interop methods, MS office is required.
