which activity can override type into? In this case the type into activity is not working when trying to insert data to save a file in the directory

Are you talking about the Save As window that appears? I usually use Set Text instead of Type Into. But I’ve had issues where Set Text didn’t work, and I had to use Type Into but slow it down (you can set the delay between keys).

I’ve also found that in some instances, you have to type the path first, click the open button, then type the filename. I have no idea why.

Muito obrigado @postwick , irei tentar com a atividade set text e também digitar antes o caminho e depois salvar, agradecido!

Fine

There is another solid approach to solve this

We can use copy paste method

  1. Use a Set to clipboard activity and pass the string variable there as a input

  2. Then use a SEND HOT KEY activity and indicate the field where you want to have the value typed and use key ctrl+v

  3. This will just paste the value in that field without any error

Or

There is another approach to handle as suggested by postwick

  1. Use same type into and try enabling simulate type and DelayBetweenKeys as 500

Or

  1. Use set text activity
