    Hello @sowndarya

    Did you provide storage drive path in write excel operator? Did you connect "thr" port of write excel to "res"? 

    Memory buffered can be seen when rapidminer cannot interpret the data format. If possible provide your XML (View --> Show Panel --> XML) code for us to review.

    the "fil" port is the excel file binary data. When you use "Write Excel", you specify a location on your disk for the Excel file to be written to. That's your final output, you're done, you don't connect the "fil" port to anything.
    The "fil" port should only be connected if you don't want to store your Excel file on disk, but instead for example upload it to Dropbox or Amazon S3. Then you pass that data to the Dropbox/S3/... operator and upload it. For just saving it to your local disk, just don't connect the port.
