Just In case one doubt, I am downloading the attachment using save attachment activity
I need to check the extension of that attachment and I am giving the folder path to save the attachment in save attachment activity.
I need to check if the folder contains xlsx file or not

yah with PATH EXISTS activity itself we can get that boolean output where mention the same file path so that it will tell whether its there or not
