You can fetch files data using Directory.GetFiles(“folder path”).ToString) and validate your file name accordingly and read that file only.

You can use the assign activity to get it done. In assign activity under the value propery provide the below…


This will get any files in the folder with the extension .csv

I have tried this to…but its showing illegal character used

Can you share a screenshot of that activity along with the command you use to get files… and also the exact error message…

This is often because people use “ instead of "
