Input

Required Inputs

  • File type
    Choose either .xlsx or .csv
  • Path for a folder o store the new file
  • File name
  • IF File Exists
    Select what to do when a file with the same name has been detected in the same folder. 

    Your choices are
    1) fail the bot 2) create and fail by adding (n) at the end of the file name 3) overwrite the file, and 4) do not make the file, give no error, and proceed to the next operation.

  • Validate Option
    When checked, it validates the file name.
    - [Return Failure] option returns fail and stop the bot when illegal characters are detected.
    [Sanitize] option automatically removes the illegal characters. It also adds an underscore (_) when “reserved words” in the Windows are used for the file name. However, COM0 and LPT0 are not correctable with the Sanitize option. It just leads to a bot to fail.

Optional Inputs

  • Excel Sheet name
    Defines the sheet name. Default is “Sheet1”  (the new Excel file contains only one sheet.)
    Special characters like the following are not allowed to be included in the sheet name. 
    `\, ', *, /, :, ?, [, ], ’, ', *, /, :, ?, [, \, ], ¥` 

  • Sheetname Length
    Defines what to do when sheet name becomes longer than 31 characters.
    "Cut to 31 char":deletes all that is after the 32nd characters.
