You can try this :slight_smile:

assign : string1 = “ C:\Smart project\TestT666.CSV

@Seem You can use regex like as shown below

                      assign str = “ **C:\Smart project\TestT666.CSV** ”

                      assign str = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(str,".*(?=\\)").ToString

So Now str will have ** C:\Smart project**

If you are after getting the directory name from the full path string you could try the following:
directory = Io.Path.GetDirectoryName(" C:\Smart project\TestT666.CSV")


Try this
“C:\Smart project\TestT666.CSV”.Substring(0,16)


Use below code in assign activity or message box

Path.GetDirectoryName(“C:\Smart project\TestT666.CSV”)

It returns as you expected like this C:\Smart project
