Hi @Neha_Aggarwal1

The following thread might help you with this:

Best Regards.

I am using microsoft office 365 activities for sharepoint …


Use find files or folders on the destination folder with the filename as query…if something is returned in the results then its present…if not it is not present…results.count will help in understanding if something is returned or not

Actually if you need to replce only…then directly use upload file and you have an option replace…so if present it would be replaced …if not a new file is uploaded

Hope this helps


i need to do move the file from “source” folder to this “06182023” folder(runtime todays date folder) But the condition is if same file already present in the 06182023 folder then I need to do replace while applying move file action
