How to Save the File in Current Month Folder

Hello Everyone
How can we save the file that is open in the Current Month Folder?

The Month Folder is already Created but how does the bot identify the Current Month Folder and Save the File that is Open in that Folder Only

Hi there @anmita,
I hope you are well!

You can generate the month at runtime using the below:
Assign - strCurrentMonth = DateTime.Today.Month.ToString()

If run today, this would have a value of 5, given we are in May.

Should you need to format it a particular way, you can also do the below:
Assign - strCurrentMonth = DateTime.Today.ToString("MM-yyyy")

Which will return the result 05-2022.

Ultimately, you need to take this dynamically generated value and add it to your folder path - For example:
Assign - strMonthFolderPath = Path.Combine("C:\Users\Mr_JDavey\Documents\Months", strMonth)

This will produce a path equal to (using the latest date example):

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks once again for your support,

Hi again @anmita,
Apologies, I misunderstood.

You can get the current year/month values using:
Assign - strYear = DateTime.Today.Year.ToString("yyyy")
Assign - strMonth = DateTime.Today.Month.ToString("MM")

Then, you can create the path using:
Assign - strDynamicFilePath = Path.Combine("C:\Users\Mr_JDavey\", strYear, strMonth, "Abc.xlsx")

The output will be:

Always happy to help!
Thanks once again,

Hi @anmita,

@Mr_JDavey shows you how to create this file path. You can position the file by doing now.Month.ToString while saving it.
