Check format file

Good afternoon! I download files from the site, I need to check the files for format.
You can do this:

  1. If the first docx, and the second excel - then download.
    Then open excel first (names unknown in advance)
  2. Download. If there is an Excel file - open
    How to do it?

For both scenarios it seems like we need to open Excel first right
In that case
Once after downloading and Saving to a folder
—use a assign activity like this
arr_filepath = Directory.GetFiles(“yourfolderpath”,”*.xlsx”)

Where arr_filepath is a variable of type array of string which will have only xlsx files in it

—now use a FOR EACH activity and pass the above array variable as input
—inside the loop use EXCEL APPLICATION SCOPE and mention the input file path as item.ToString

An array is not needed. the file will be 1 with this format

Then we can mention like
Str_filepath = Directory.GetFiles(“yourfolderpath”,”*.xlsx”)(0).ToString

Then pass it directly to excel application scope with input as str_filepath

Cheers @RPA3


Oh is my comment coming like this

In Directory.GetFiles(“yourfolderpath”,”*.xlsx”)(0)

Here yourfolderpath mean the folder path of where excel file is downloaded

And in excel application scope pass the input as str_filepath as now that is the variable which holds the excel file path right

Inside that scope we can use any excel activity we want

What if the file was not downloaded and the folder already had other excel files, I don’t need to open the old ones
