Can you please let me know how to do this one @ClaytonM @Divyashreem @vvaidya @arivu96

You can use Path.GetExtension method to find extension of files.

  1. assign DirectoryInfo=new DirectoryInfo(argDocFolderPath)
  2. ExcelList = directoryInfo.GetFiles(“*.xlsx”)
  3. For each file in ExcelList have if condition and check for the name, if it matched then use start process

Hi buddy @Naveen.Ch


  1. Use a assign activity with variable at left path_collec of array type
  2. In the left side ot the same assign variable enter like…
    This gives you only xlsx filea
  3. If you want to open the files as @Divyashreem mentioned, use a for each loop with input path_collec and change the type to string
  4. Use start process and pass the input as item from for each loop…
  5. Thats all buddy you are all done

Thanks for the quick response
i have tried your solution but its checking only first excel file match or not, if it is not match it is not iterating to check all the files


can you just try to debug and check how many file names are there in directory info.?

Buddy @Naveen.Ch
hope this workflow could help you buddy
