Send attachment with email

Hi everyone.

I have a robot that data scrapes a website and saves the result in a .csv file - everything is working fine.
Now I want to add to the robot that it should send the .csv file to my email after the file is created.

I use google smtp and I can send mails via the robot, but I cant figure out how to attach the .csv file. Basically these fields:

Best regards

Kindly mention the full path of that csv file in that attach file window
That is the file path of that cvs file

Here you need to pass the CSV file path.

@Peter_C you can create a new string variable FilePath, then assign the file path of your csv file. Then input the FilePath on the Value field of the Attach Files window.

Hi - Thanks.

I got it it send an email with the attacment by using this: Environment.CurrentDirectory+"\Rapporter\file.csv"

But my files has a DATE (“MM-dd-yyyy_hh_mm_ss”) like so: file01-09-2020_03_47_11.csv
so there anyway to attach those files. Can I make a variable that contains the file(s) - if so how?

Best regards

Try this: Environment.CurrentDirectory+"\Rapporter\file"+ DateTime.Now.ToString(“MM-dd-yyyy_hh_mm_ss”)+".csv"

That did not work because the files that are made by data scraping has a differend timestamp.

Maybe I can explain it this way: I want so send all csv-files in a folder but this does not work:
Environment.CurrentDirectory+"\Rapporter\*.csv"
I cannot use ‘*’

My robot data scrapes and makes csv files. These files names will be named with the time+date: as shown here:

- after the files are made I want them send to me by email - hope you understand :slight_smile:

After scraping, assign DateTime.Now.ToString(“MM-dd-yyyy_hh_mm_ss”) to a String variable TimeStamp so that the time stamp will be the same as the file name of the csv file… use this later to attach the file:
Environment.CurrentDirectory+"\Rapporter\file"+ TimeStamp+".csv"

Thanks.
