Can any one please tell me How to rename all files in a folder using UI Path?
Hi welcome to the community!
You can get all file names like this: Directory.GetFiles(“c:\folder”) and assign it as value for a string array type variable, then you a for each with that same variable, inside the loop you use move file activity and use item as source and the new filename as destination.
you can also do this by using Command Prompt
use “Start Process” activity and pass arguments as specified in the above link. This maybe a little bit faster when comparing with iterating on the file list.
I would suggest to use LongPathTool program. It resolves problem regarding source path too long.
In this video I do a lot of stuff with Files (Chapter included) :
1:10 Download the file and Move the latest file to folders
4:30 Rename files with VB commands
6:00 Move files to do Rename
6:55 Delete files
8:15 Delete only PNG files
8:55 Delete all the files except PNG files
9:55 Move files
