File Not Found Issue on Initial Run

Hi , I am passing the file in input argument while triggering the dispatcher . But dispacher gets failed saying there was no file present (file is in share point). But when dispatcher is retried again it works . Can you please help me what could be the reason for these issues. File name is ~ce1234abc.xls . I have tried giving delay also in start but still facing this issue.


as per file looks like file is a temporary one…generally temp files will have ~ at start

Just check the properties properly


Hi @tharani.natarajan

Use the “File Exist” activity to check if the file is exist or not then save the result in the Boolean variable. Use “IF” condition to check the Boolean is true or false. Then you can decide the flow accordingly.

Hope this helps :slight_smile:

Hi @tharani.natarajan ,
Please check the file exist,
Check the robot’s file access permissions
Make sure there are no other users using it when the robot is running
You can copy the file across a section to make sure there are no changes before running

Hi @tharani.natarajan

Put your process in the Retry Scope activity

Hope this helps
