Word automation - auto saving

Hi everyone, just a small problem here - how not to overwrite the word template files? The “save changes” checkbox in the word resource remains unselected, but the template just keeps overwriting all over again. The MS Word settings are correct (auto saving is off). Did anyone have the same problem? Thanks in advance! :slight_smile:


Welcome to UiPath forum

Overwrite is not because of auto save option being enabled

Auto save is a different property
If selected, the document is saved on each change caused by an activity. If not selected, the changes are saved only after all the activities added inside Use Word File are executed. This option is selected by default.

Overwrite is something that comes along the activity when use replace text activity

May be try with append text if you want to add any text at the end and not overwriting

Cheers @maja.miasek

Thanks a lot!
