Open, process and save multiple files in a folder

Good afternoon people

My Power auto is in Portuguese, so I'll write some things here differently.


I'm trying to mount a loop, in a folder.




 This loop will take the files from this folder and update them one by one.




However, it seems that the instance I set for "Click button" is linked to the file that I created the flow, and when the second file is opened, Flow does not identify the button to be clicked. I've identified in the finer configuration that I can call a variable for the "winddown=%window%" field, but it didn't work either Has anyone ever done something like this?

The Name attribute in the last screenshot is pointing to only a specific Excel and thereby not able to interact with Excel files having other names.

You can use 'contains' in the dropdown and just use the word Excel.

Good Morning,

Thank you for the tip!


Another doubt.

If I use a variable, I must leave it with double quotes in the formula, or I can just put a variable in the selection field.
