Save attachment and move the file

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

My goal is to download/save an attachment from an Outlook message and move that attachment/file to a new folder. The problem is that the move file activity needs the name of the file in order to move it. I would be very grateful if someone could help me.

Best regards

Best Regards,

I looked into the thread “How to get the filename of attachment?” and I found an .xaml file with the code. Sadly it won’t open and I would like to ask you if you can make a screenshot of the code because I didn’t manage to do it yet :sweat_smile:
