For some reason, one of my Excel files produces a backup file after saving. The backup file is the file with the ‘~’ sign at the start of the file name. For my automation, I’m trying to get Uipath to open up the file ‘nm24 masterfile.xlsx’ so I used an Assign activity to pick up any file which contains ‘masterfile’ in the description. Problem is, Uipath ends up opening the back up file (~$nm24 masterfile.xlsx) instead. Is there a way to get Uipath to stop opening the backup file? Perhaps if there’s a way to tell it to check if the file name contains either the ~ or $ sign and if yes, to not open it?
