Hi,

Please find the attached Workflow.Main.xaml (40.7 KB)

while assigning list use this:
Directory.GetFiles(config.Rows(0).Item(“Path”).ToString,"*.zip")

While moving files use this:

"D:\Backup Files\" & path.GetFileName(item.ToString)

Hi,

Akshay thanks for your help but Directory.GetFiles(config.Rows(0).Item(“Path”).ToString,"*.zip") line is used here just to extract data from one folder and here in this folder there is no .zip file. i am just moving files which is there in this folder and sending it to “D:\Backup Files” folder and then zipping here and then moving the zip file from here back to config.Rows(0).Item(“Path”).ToString.

ok… so whenever you are moving file pass the full path with file name like below:

From Path- "C:/temp/123.txt"
Destination path- “C:/temp2/123.txt”

From Path :“C:/temp/ID_*.txt”

Destination path:“C:/temp2/ID_*.txt”
