Hi @Tel43,

You can iterate on the following path like,

for each folder in Directory.GetDirectories(Path)

Let me know in case of further queries…
Thanks :slight_smile:


yes it worked,but why is it giving me the folder name?
although it specifies GetFileNameWithoutExtension

Actually, we are iterating on the folders only, and passing the folder path in the loop…

So its giving the folder name only to you…

assign strArray = path.GetDirectoryName(FileNameWithPath).Split("\"c)
assign foldername = strArray(strarray.length)

The first assign activity will get you everything from C:\ all the way up to “datareport”. Then split the result with \ and you will get a string array.
With the second assign, you get the last item in the array. This will be “datareport” in your case. Hope that helps.
