Unable to read a work document using read text file activtiy

Hello Fellas,

I am new to UiPath and trying to read a word document using read text activity and writing the text in another text file

While reading the text system shows error

"Source: Read Text

Message: The process cannot access the file ‘C:\Users\tg3067\Documents\Defect Log.docx’ because it is being used by another process.

Exception Type: System.IO.IOException"

Please help to resolve the issue.

Close the file “Defect Log.docx” and try.

The File which you access should not be in open .

I tried that… but still facing the same

Try creating a new file and test it once.

Close the process in task manager once.

The error is related to access issue.

Let me know if you still face issue . we will investigate further

It happens when the some docx is open. Kill All the Word process for the Current user id and then try to read the Word.

no process related to word was currently running.

I don’t know how, but its working fine now:P

Could you help me to, “read each line of the word document and split based on the delimiter (”:“) and write the text on the other text file”

Say for example, if i have multiple lines like,

Emp Name : ABC
Emp ID : 123
Emp Desgination: ASFD
Supervisor : FGH

In this i want to write ABC, 123, ASFD, FGH in another file. how to split and write.

Thanks, I have another query which i tagged in another comment. Could you please look into that

  1. Read the text file and store it as a string

  2. Split as each row of lines like
    YourString.Split(new String() {Environment.NewLine},

  3. Now loop list of lines and split with (“:”) and extract the data


Thanks dude
