Great exercise. I was confident enough to review all the issues against the Robot Path and make the changes in one go. I made good use of the “Run to this Activity” and “Run from this Activity” to check what the Robot had done. Referring to the Output showed me exactly what had occurred.

The only unexpected outcome was spamming Sam. I meant to email myself. That was down to the Excel resource file, which I had copied and edited and not referenced back. So the Robot did what it was instructed to do.

Great Exercise, In this I also tried the Compress Files option to make less emails

Brilliant! It gives more confidence after troubleshooting someone else’s project.

Most challenging exercise for me to date. I tried to do this without having to use outlook yet however I ended up buying outlook. The SMTP and Gmail protocols just didn’t work out. It is really great exercise that I will probably use often.

This is by far the hardest exercise I have encountered yet. Great exercise to test my skills! Ready to keep moving forward!

Hi,

Instead of fixing the robot I tried to create it from the scratch. I tried to build with one of the month folder already created.
I had issues for if condition - not thinking to let the “else” branch blank…
After running the project I noticed that a folder “___” it is created and templates files are copied there.
I run the solution as well and i have seen the same result.
Is it the normal output of the project or is it an error?

Cheers

Hello,

To avoid creating a folder “__”? you should add just before checking the existance of the folder (Month), an “if” activity to check if CurrentRow (Month) is empty.

And I noticed that in the robot path we send the email after the loop “For each file” so we don’t have to nest “Use outlook” inside “For each file”. We can just send the two documents in one email by specifiying the folder that contains them in the attachments field, this way we would be respecting the robot path provided.

Thank you.

Great practice! Have to be very careful to check all the file path.

Hello everyone, I had a problem with an error that prevented me to copy the files into the folder created. It was an error that stated:

'We can’t open ‘C:\Users\guspaz\Documents\AMAZON\HR\TRAININGS\REPAIR_ROBOT_EXERCISE\~$Current E…’

Could somebody help me out please?
What this is happening?
How can I fix it?
