How to rename a folder during runtime

I have one value in excel…during run time i have to create a new folder and rename that folder with the value which i got from the excel cell.


You just have to loop through the Excel file and use the “Create Directory” activity to create the folder with the value of the excel assigned to a variable.

Something like this:


Hope it Helps!


I think this can be achieved by 4 steps:

  1. Create a 1st folder using Create directory.
  2. Create 2nd folder using Create directory with the excel value as the name.
  3. Move the files from folder 1 to 2.
  4. Delete the folder 1.

For new question please prefer to create new thread

You can Use Excel Application Scope activity to get data from excel into a Datatable and then by using Setordinal() method you can change the columns order.
