VB.net…? Will this work in uipath also ?

Hi @Kajal_Sharma

Yes. Why not. While Selecting project we select language from 2 languages i.e., VB.Net or C#.Net so depending on that use the respective syntax.

Hi @Kajal_Sharma,

Hey @Kajal_Sharma,

Here you go use these commands to get the last modified file from directory.
String.Join(“”,Directory.GetFiles(our_FolderPath,”*”,SearchOption.AllDirectories).OrderByDescending(Function(d) New FileInfo(d).CreationTime).Take(1) )

Note:
1.Replace our_FolderPath with your desired folder path
2.Replace “” with your required file format “.xlxs”,”*.pdf”

Then you can use rename method to change the name using invoke method.

Mark this as solution if this helps.

Happy Automation!
