If Excel already exists, how to copy and rename it as Backup

Hi, all.

I need to save the Email attachment to the destination folder. However, if the attachment (.xlsx, .xls, .csv) with same name already exists, e.g. “AAA”, how can I save the new attachment and rename it as “AAA_backup”.

Thx for your help in advance.

@mason_wong - you can try below…

before saving the attachment… check the file already available with pathexists activity… if pathexists - add _backup to the file name else just use the same file name…

  • PathExists - return boolean name like isFileExists
    if isFileExists
    true block - fileName = fileName + “_backup”
    else - ignore
    outside if block add your save attachment logic
