Hi @Teenu

Can you try opening it right from the folder location?

Chrome saves it downloads folder, you can open your file from there as well as an alternate.

Or instead of opening that popup you can simply click on file that has been downloaded it will open the file.

Thanks,

My purpose is to convert xlsx to csv and so here -after a file is downloaded it will appear on the downloaded frame of chrome browser.

I tried simply clicking on that file and selector is not identifying.

This can be done from the Downloads folder. After the file gets downloaded open it and save it as CSV

Also if it’s okay can you attach a workflow

Thanks,

Hi Prankur ,

Saving is not an issue and am able to save the file by typing the required location to file path and Save it

But am not getting the option to open the file for editing.

Try Open Application activity and provide the path of your file.

You can also try Start Process Activity and pass the file path to open it.

I guess in the file name .xlsx extension already there. Before passing it to Start Process activity try to print the value of this “FilePath”+fileName+".xlsx" and may be something wrong here only. After printing this you will get to know whats wrong here.

If you not able to find any issue then let me know and am ready to help you.

Also in the “Start Process” activity, they have mentioned as a Note that the entire string to be enclosed in “”

If I hardcode the full string along with filename.xlsx,then it works fine

Yes it should be enclosed in double quotes"". but if you pass any variable into it then we won’t use quotes for that variable.

Please find the attached workflow.

Flowchart.xaml (5.9 KB)

Here, strFile is variable of type string and it contains file name.
