Can ME find the file extension type?


Recommended Posts

Hello all!


I was wondering if doing a repeat loop through file names that I could find the file .ext of whatever file in a specific folder?


Let's say I am repeating with Folder and looping to find file names and looking specifically for the extensions i.e. .doc, .xls. pdf etc. I am not actually looking for specific file extensions rather I want ME to tell me what they are(for each file).


Can ME do this?

Yes, Macro Express will do this. Use the Repeat with Folder command and save the file name to a variable such as T1.


Then use the Variable Set from File Path command to save the file extension to a variable such as T2. Enter %T1% in the Filename/Path field if you saved the file name in the previous command to T1.
