I have used this activity ,

I’m getting an error saying that "Couldn’t find the path ‘d:\users\abc.xlsx’ "

where as the file path is already existing

Hi,
Use the Copy file activity.

1st parameter is to provide the path where you want to copy the file.
2nd parameter is where you want to copy the file with a file name.

Thanks

but here the file name is not constant .

I want the same file name in the destination as well .

And also the source path gets the files while executing the loop.

okay you mean there is a folder users exist in D drive?

yes …

Can you try this activity in same drive with different folder names. No problem in paths and names they can be dynamic

Ok… but here the requirement is two different folders (I.e I will be using the shard path as destination from local folder(source folder))

Looks like some path issue bcz it is working good with same and different drive too.
Are you able to perform the same operation manually?

Might be you are coping file where folder doesn’t exist.

Please check once.

@PrankurJoshi is the right about Path and file name can be managed.

It is achievable. Just check do you have permission to put a file over there?

Copy file to the shared path is working for me.

Thanks

Create a test folder on root in C drive and try this might be happening because you are using users folder of C drive

Hi,

I think file is already exists in the destination folder. Click on overwrite option in properties panel and try.

If you still face the issue attach your error message or code.

Thanks
