An Easter egg is an undocumented feature in software. Early examples included the magic eight-ball in Access (it gave life advice) and the flight simulator in early versions of Excel. Your task is to find the Easter Egg in the Excel workbook in the above folder.
The aim of the exercise is to display this message. The Easter egg's contents and location have been hidden so as not to spoil your surprise!
Create a new flow called Finding Easter Egg, and within this create an action to launch Excel, opening up the workbook in the above folder.
Now add actions as follows:
|Set active Excel worksheet||Activate the worksheet called Easter Egg in this workbook.|
|Send keys||Mimic pressing Ctrl + End to go to the last active cell in the worksheet.|
|Get active cell in Excel worksheet||Read the row and column number of this cell into two variables.|
|Get column name on Excel worksheet||Get the column letter corresponding to this column number (eg this would translate the number 27 into column letter AA).|
|Read from Excel worksheet||Read the contents of the cell with this row and column number into a variable.|
|Display message||Display the message shown at the start of the exercise, but without the grey boxes obscuring the contents!|
Test your flow to check if it works (it should leave the Excel workbook open, with your Easter Egg selected), then save the flow and close it down.
