Hi @Raj, performing this check in UiPath studio is a very simple and easy task as you have to simply use Path Exists activity and its boolean output will tell you whether your file exists or not. You just need to add Path Exists activity in your Sequence and provide the File Path and Path Type in properties of the activity. Based on the output, display a message showing file exists or not using Message Box activity. For example, follow the below shown screenshot:

Hi

May I adress one question to continue the scenario? If the file exist, is there a way to open it using some activities ?

Thx

Valentin

If you are referring to opening a file that exists, you could probably try using Start process activity where you need to pass the file path variable as input to file property in the property panel.

Hope this helps!
