Yah we can use
Append text activity within word application scope, for that go to manage packages in design tab and search in all packages as uipath.word.activities and install it
–then under that activity in activities panel choose APPEND TEXT

Thank you for your solution. Indeed I am looking for a solution to write the new text at the beginning of an existing file.

For example:

Existing doc file:

Hello this is a test for Robotics.

StringToAdd:

This is the new string.

Result:

This is the new string.
Hello this is a test for Robotics.

In that case we can first use READ TEXT activity and get the text in word as a string variable named instring
—now use a assign activity and mention like this
“This is the new string.” + Environment.Newline + I nString.ToString

Now we can use append with new word document file path
