I’ve been playing around a bit, but am struggling to get the following done. I have a file which I’d like to download an a daily base. This file is generated every night and then stored in a cloud drive. The first part of the filename is like “Dummy Name - Group X - 2020-04-08 00_39 CEST.xlsx”. Tomorrow the name will be like “Dummy Name - Group X - 2020-04-09 00_39 CEST.xlsx”. Each new report thus has the data and time of generating this report. How can I make sure UI Path downloads this report based on the first part of the file name. I’ve tried using a fuzzy match, but it doesn’t seem to work.
Thanks a ton, Anders. Unfortunately, I wasn’t clear in my post that I’m actually referring to a cloud drive on a website. One of our systems allows us to schedule the creation of reports. They are then stored (in the way I described above) on a cloud drive, which you can only access via a browser. I can access this page through a static URL.
I can completely follow your clear instructions, but am not sure how to apply this logic to a URL, rather than a folder on my local machine.
Many thanks for any follow-up instructions. And I’ll definitely check-out all the other extremely useful video’s you’ve created! Really cool stuff
I see that the emphasis here was in a dynamic file name, i am stuck with downloading files with dynamic file types(PDF,Word,xlxs,etc etc).
Anders have a video where he saves/scrape the data and url to excel document, so i went and change that and scrapped a website where i want to download some documents, however those documents are not of simmilar types and at the moment i can only save one type.
I am using DownlodFileActivity i got from managed packages.
Here i am downloading the vendow_master excel sheet so automatically below document type will be also mentioned
So provide the file path as C:\ (some before filepath parts)\vendor_master instead of
C:\ (some before filepath parts)\vendor_master.xlsx
Not really, your answer did not clarify anything, you see if you follow that video i attached above and i ommit the filetype it will only save a file without a filetype, but the urls/link i am downloading from has the file type
