I don’t recommend this at all, but give a try @Chris-Yiwei

Make sure you have a back up of the original file before doing the below step

Use move file activity and provide the source path of file with “.docx” extension and destination as “.doc”. Check if the file is with the exact format or anything missing

You can use UiPathTeam.FileConverter.Activities (available in Go)

yes thats absolutely possible
–use a assign activity like this
arr_filepath = Directory.GetFiles(“yourfoldername”,“*.docx”)
this will give us all the docx file in the folder we have mentioned and the variable arr_filepath is a string array variable

–now use a for each activity and pass the above variable as input and in the property panel change the type argument as string
–inside the loop use a move file activity where mention the input as item and in the destination property mention like this

hope this would help you
