Save attachment activity filtering is not working properly when it gets special character

Hi All,

I am facing issue while applying attachment name in Save attachment activity filtering.

My logic is to download each and every attachment in the loop and then move it to somewhere. Since i have used For each loop for email attachments downloading and given attachment name in the ‘Save attachment’ activity to avoid whole attachment downloading.

In the loop it was downloaded all the attachment except that when it gets special character like ‘(’ or ‘)’. I am not sure what else. Also not all special char.

is there any solution for it?

Thanks in advance!

for each mail in mails(List messege)
then use “IF condition” mail.Attachments.Any
then for each attachmnt in mail.Attachments

hi @prabakaran.s,

So Basically we want to Omit all the Special chracters from the Attachment Name.

We can make use of regular Expression here to get only Integers and Anpalbets and remove all extra characters , post that we pass the result .
