How do you remove an extension from 'File Name' dynamic value?
I tried doing replace but it didn't work...
Ex: File Name contains "Testing Doc.docx", I want to remove ".docx" and just leave "Testing Doc"
Thanks in advance!
I did a test on my side and found that the File name output by the file is created in a folder is not the name of the file, more like Id.
It seems that this Trigger doesn't work here. I recommend using When a file is created(properties only), you could also choose Folder here.
The Name that he outputs is the name of the file that does not contain extension.
Please take a try.
I did the test on my side, Dynamic content-File name was encoded, and the encoded was removed, which is the name of the file.
If you want to remove the file extension, you could try this expression, this applies to file hits containing multiple ".":
Although I am confused about configuring a file name that does not contain an extension in Get item-Id, this expression could be referred to.
Please take a try.
Thanks for the expression. I'm new to this whole expression with Flow.. is this how it's supposed to be done?
I just copied and pasted the expression in the formula field and clicked ok.
So youre extenion replacing expression worked.. but I guess Get Item ID requires a different value...
I tried using the File Name as the ID for Get Item and it returns false (can't find)..
Humm, this is tricky..
So the direction you started is wrong. I also suggested in the previous post that I am confused why you should configure the file name in Get item-Id, which obviously does not get the desired result.
But your requirement is to get the file name without extension, so I provide such a method.
Or you could tell me what kind of Flow you need to create, and what kind of Flow you want to achieve.
Use When a file is created in a folder, you can't get the item ID. You could replace the trigger with When a file is created(properties only).
Then select "Enter custom value" in the Get item-List Name, fill in the Library Name, and fill the ID of the output of the Trigger in the Id.
I thought that Get ID field would work with the File Name - in theory at least.
Basically, I want a flow to trigger to:
That's the quickiest summary.
But, the whole process isn't that simple.. :
Now, since I'm the one that created all Flows, on Step 3, it'll reigster me as the one who created the file as the flow is runned by me. So, what I'm trying to do is Match the File Name with the Item List, get the email address of the submitter to send the email.
Also, I want to ensure that if two people submits the Form at the same time, it doesn't confuse which file to send to which user.
The reason why I don't use When a file is created(properties only) is because it doesn't come with File Content parameter that I need to send the doc
