Hi, any updates, thank you


use Python to invoke the Python script to do this its so easy to do.

Use below Code:
import os

# Specify the folder path
folder_path = r'C:\Path\To\Your\Folder'

# List all files in the folder
files = os.listdir(folder_path)

# Iterate through the files in the folder
for file in files:
    # Check if the file is a Word document (you can modify the condition accordingly)
    if file.endswith('.docx'):
        # Specify the old and new file paths
        old_file_path = os.path.join(folder_path, file)
        # Rename the file (replace 'Word' with the desired new name)
        new_file_path = os.path.join(folder_path, file.replace('Word', 'NewName'))
        # Perform the renaming
        os.rename(old_file_path, new_file_path)
        print(f"Renamed: {old_file_path} to {new_file_path}")

Make sure to replace 'Word' with the actual part of the filename that you want to replace, and 'NewName' with the desired new name.

If you dont know how to use python please check the below post I explain end to end and I given the python script and also I given Video for beginners

If you have any issues let me know.

how do i put a if statement before the rename file part to which if the so to be rename has already exist in the folder then dont rename that and go to the next?

Hi @superpunchypp ,
currentname = newname

which variable would be the currentname and newname

Hi @superpunchypp ,
The current name is file.toString
You can call the new name according to the renaming method I sent you in the previous source code

is it ok if i send you my current process, I will send you a sample file to fix the current issue

ok, send it to me and I will fix it for you

I sent, do let me know as soon as possible



You need to use



where do i put this in? can show in UiPath like a screenshot so i can do myself


Drag if condition and in the condition field paste this


you said drag if condition but where do i put this if condition at ?

or is it this if condition?


You wnat the condition for rename…so place it at the point of rename…and move rename to the else side of if condition where ever you need


yes i did that but in order for it to be same existing name for the if statement to run it has to be renamed first but since it has exist it cant be renamed


Then check in the folder if same file exists using this condition in if

Directory.Getfiles("Folderpath",renamenmename + "*").Count>0

This also to be used in if codnition only and on else side you have no file with name on then side you have a file with same name

Also rather than creating multiple topics for same and also asking same question incremnetqlly…it would be good if you can tell what all you need at once and maintain only ine topic…I see atleast 7 topics created for same which will not help anyone as every update will be in different thread
