Move several files at once

Hi
I want to move several files at once using the copy file action. All files containing a certain string “abc” in the filename should be moved. I tried using a wildcard * in the original filepath field but that is not accepted.

Any ideas?

Kind regards
Tim

Maybe use Get Folder Contents, then with each file check with text parsing if in name is “abc”. If it’s true, then do file move.

Yes, thanks! I tried that but it takes too long when there is a lot of folder content. I wanted to save time. Now I use a DOS command in the command prompt which takes a bit of time but not as long as looping through all the folder content.

Have you tried using filter by Name in the Get Folder Contents action, filter by regexp .*abc.*, and then move all files using For Each loop?

Hi Alesia
that was exactlty what I did in the meantime :wink:

best regards
Tim
