Extract File name from a direstory

I need to perform particular operation on files which is ending with -Trial Balance.xlsx. I am trying with Directory.GetFiles(selectFolder, “TrialBalance.xlsx”). But it is not working. Can anyone help me with it.


to get the listt of xlsx files from a folder
arr_files = Directory.GetFiles(“yourfolderpath”,"*.xlsx")
where arr_files is a variable of type array of string

now use a for each loop and pass the above variablle as input and change the type argument as string in the property panel of for each activity
–inside the loop to get the file name
use this expression in writeline

Cheers @Ankita_Biswas_SDC_Ko


The below query with return you the list of excel files which contains “TrialBalance.xlsx” in its name. This will return List(Of FileInfo) - so you can loop and use it with FileInfo as the looping Object.

Directory.GetFiles(strDesktop).[Select](Function(f) New FileInfo(f)).Where(Function(f) (f.Extension.Equals(".xlsx") AndAlso (f.Name.Contains("TrialBalance"))).ToList()

I am getting validation error in this one.

You were almost there.

Directory.GetFiles(selectFolder, “*TrialBalance.xlsx”)
