Let me quote what support replied to Veena as this might be of help to others, as well:

 

>> The reason for this issue is that when you use data from the Excel file (read data) in the Data-Driven testing, it is not possible to write in this file. In this case, I would recommend creating a copy of this Excel file and write all changes there - thus it will help avoid this error.

I am also getting the same error. I am writing the excel report at step level for each click, enter, select, etc. Before Excel.Save or Excel.Open step is completed, it is proceeding to the next line of code and eventually fails the test.

 

No proper integration of Excel.Save or Excel.Open is not concluded before it moves to the next line of code.
