Copy master Excel file to another location then edit the file

excel

#1

I made a bot that gets directions from email then gets the required info and pastes it into an excel sheet. The exel sheet it pastes it into is a specifically formatted excel sheet. I want to find out how to

Make a copy of the master excel file
Move it to another location to use for editing.

I could automate this with clicks, but I’m lookin for a better way. Does uipath have anything?

Hi

UiPath is capable to do the following task(s) :

You can use the Copy File and Move File activity to perform the above mentioned actions

  • Make a copy of the master excel file : Copy file to specified location.

  • Move it to another location to use for editing : Move file to move any file to a specified location.

Infact, you can create the copy of the file and save it to a different location by mentioning a different location in the destination path in COPY FILE activity.

Path is where my master is
Destination is where I want to copy it

Hi

You need to mention the new file name along with the path.

Destination ; “C:\Users\ffalor\Document\Automation**\CopyFiles.xlsx**”

Please refer the below image.
