@SowmyaLeo Thanks!

But i already tried it and it didn’t work

In the email template.txt there should be a {0} which will get replaced with this.

Example: String.Format(“Hello {0}”, Now.ToString)

No problem.
Which line of code is causing the error above? Can you try running it in debug mode.

yeah its happening without me starting the process its when i open it it appears! and how exactly do i run a single file in debug mode couse i am working wit REF.

its in the String.Format(template, Now) line i am getting this error “an object reference is required for reference to non-shared suffering”

I think may be restarting UiPath will fix the problem , but I’m not sure.

And for testing the code I generally break up the process into simpler blocks, test them out individually and then add them into the Framework.

@SowmyaLeo okay will test it tommorrow i am in bed now writing you back on my phone but how do you devide it into part cause I can only debug project and that starts debugging at the main.xaml

Cheers! And again thank you so much for helping!

Can you check and see if you’ve added a duplicate reference in imports?
