UIPath Error

Hi Everyone,

Can you please help to replace the highlighted string with “:” string.
I have used replace function in the text but it woun’t work.

Thank you !

Hi @Karampuri_Sathish1 ,

The syntax is yourstring.Replace(“C;”,“C:”)

Could you please provide more details about your workflow or about what exactly isn’t working? Perhaps the issue is somewhere else

Best regards,

Hi Marius,

When the insert image in excel It give error. below is workflow.

UIPath Error

Function i am using is : Environment.CurrentDirectory+“"+row.Item(1).ToString+”.png".ToString.Replace(“;”,“:”)

I think you want to replace earlier, not to the PNG part. Anyway it looks like a workaround, why you have semikolon after drive letter?

Hi Moenk,

I am always getting “;” character when i insert image. i want to insert “:” character instead of “;”.

Hi @Karampuri_Sathish1 ,

It seems to be enough:

Hi Marius,

Initially i have enter this one only but when try to insert image in excel. Then i got “;” instead of “:”.

I want like this "c:" instead of "c;" or “c;|” i got these error.

UIPath Error

This is the error i have recieved.

Hi @Karampuri_Sathish1 ,

Environment.CurrentDirectory will return the path where your .xaml file is located, and I’m not sure that your images are there

I would replace Environment.CurrentDirectory with some kind of a constant, the directory where your images are

Best regards,

Hi @Marius_Puscasu Yes i have store same place where .xaml file stored.


IF you are still getting as C; then follow as below

I’m getting C: as required, but in your case you are saying it is displaying as C;

Then as above assign entire path to a variable and try to replace as you required

Hope this helps you

Hi @Srini84 I am getting same error still. Can you please suggest another solution.

Try with this:


I have tried this but still i am getting same error.

It seems like it’s a bug with the Type Into activity. Have you tested to change the input method to SimulateType or SendWindowMessages?
