Issue with Saving file name/ path

Hi… I have been trying the currency converter example and able to follow through most of the steps. I am having a challenge with saving file in the reports folder and giving me this error. Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi @Raj_T1,

This is Afe from the Office Hour session earlier today. I do not know what timezone you are in but it is 9:13 PM (WAT) where I am.

If you don’t mind, send me a zoom link so we can collaborate on resolving this issue.

I can afford to spend some time with you on this between now and 11PM (WAT) i.e. 1 hour and 30mins from now.


Hello! I’m getting a similar error message when trying to follow along with the sample activity in the “Working with files and folders” lesson. See the screenshot below, as well as the full error message.


Source: Move File

Message: Could not find a part of the path.

Exception Type: System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException

RemoteException wrapping System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Could not find a part of the path.

Okay, so I think I figured it out. If I create the folder for the invoices to copy into, it works! However, I thought that StudioX could create folders? Or can it only create files?

HI @a.borgia - you can also create folders, but a different activity is used for that. Please see the screenshot below for an example for the copy file exercise

Hi Afe… Thanks for your support here…sorry was working on a different project and could not respond sooner. Please let me know if you would like to connect today around 2PM EDT. Thanks


Hello @Raj_T1,

Your 2PM EDT is my 7PM WAT and I have an event for that time.
However, I shall be available as from 8:30 PM i.e. 3:30PM EDT.
So if that is okay with you, kindly DM me a Zoom meeting for 3:30PM EDT

Sure… 3.30PM Est works for me… I dont have zoom… If you have a conference Id can join.


Please check your inbox, I sent you a zoom meeting link


I think I have been able to figure out the issue. Since the bot cannot create a folder (without a Create Folder activity), the Reports folder has to exist for the bot to be able to save a copy of the Excel (Report.xlsx) file there.

  1. Within the project folder where you have the Report.xlsx file, create a folder named Reports
  2. Then try running the automation again.

Can you try the following and get back to me?

I have the same problem from the Currency Conversion demo on RPA Starter course. I also added a Reports folder like @afe.araromi said with no luck. I’m thinking it’s a permissions problem. Currency Converter 7_4_2020 6_20_12 PM|690x366

Hi @ExcitedRPA,

Welcome to uipath community !

Can you please show the properties of the copy file activity.


Here you are @mukeshkala

Please make sure - The folder path mentioned here should exist. Both the folders should be available
