So where should i keep that word document file?

Hi
we can use START PROCESS activity and pass the file path of word document as input to filename property
and we can use CLICK IMAGE or CLICK activity to click on the tab

We can use word application scope Activity for operating Word. or if you want to open simply then you can use Open Application Activity

@Sneha_Ambulkar

As @Palaniyappan said, you can using the “Start Process” activity to open word document and perform the automation on it.

Also, if you are wondering if there are activities specifically for the Word document, you can try finding relevant entities on the UiPath Go which is a market place for custom created activities.

If you dont choose to explore UiPath Go for now, you can proceed with the UI based automation on the word document.

Hope this information helps. Kindly mark as solution if this helps.
