hi miss andreia,
it works but saving new copied excel file is on desktop,
how about if original excel file is placed on the folder,
and new copied excel file is on the folder of the folder of original excel file.
how to address file path.

example:

excel file is at the folder of my desktop

and copied excel file must placed on the folder inside the folder of Orig. Excel file

hope you can help me

thank you.

Hey @adwas111

You can just use Create Directory Activity and pass the path where you want to create it.

then you will be able to use the Generated folder path in Copy File Activity Destination Property :slight_smile:

Hi, @adwas111
Please try the below example. You need to modify the FromPath and ToPath to the path you want your file to be copied from, respectively to the place where you want it copied. Also, they must end in backslash “\”
Main.xaml (8.8 KB)

Hope it helps! :slight_smile:
