Using ExcelToRecordList without User Interface

I need to know how to use ExcelToRecordList without using the Upload visual component. I have a file name where the file resides on the network and I need to programmatically specify this file in a timer to be uploaded and processed each morning. Since this is a process that is kicked off by a timer, there is no user interaction.  

The ExcelToRecordList expects a binary object and not a file name and I don't know how to get around this issue.

Thanks,

Paul

Hi Paul,,

You can use following component to read the file and get a binary of its content. And also to write files.
