After " Get files in folder " put in a message box referencing the %NewOutput%.

See if it  outputs what you require, if its correct, then the issue is probably within PA rather than PAD.

For starters try losing that decimal after doc...

File filter should be:  *.doc

You mentioned about looking for PDF, any reason why are you using Doc instead of *.pdf

Thank you.

But it is not filtering the pdf.Desktop flows.png

Hi @mahaprasaddas52 

Your first screenshot is of Desktop flows but this is of Cloud flows.

Could you elaborate what exactly are you looking in Desktop flows as this is a PAD forum.

I just created the output variable and store that attachment to the output variable. And pass the output variable to my cloud flow and store that.1.png2.png

after running the flow the output variable does not carry the pdf. 

After " Get files in folder " put in a message box referencing the %NewOutput%.

See if it  outputs what you require, if its correct, then the issue is probably within PA rather than PAD.

Thanks. Got my solution. 

@mahaprasaddas52, can you share what was your solution? The screenshot you shared already has the "D:\attachments.." in the output variable of PAD. What did you change to make it available in the Cloud flows?
