Summary

Summary

Obtain the list of file names and the number of files present in the input path

Overview

Overview

The input argument takes the input folder path, ext. and the two output arguments give the count of total files and list of files.

You can just invoke the file and pass the file type as e.g., "*.txt", and folder path. The out arguments give you the list of txt files present in the folder path and the total number of files.

Arguments:

In Type

in_FolderPath - Pass the input path as a string

in_FileType - Type of file or document i.e., "*.xlsx","* .doc","* .pdf" etc.

Out Type

out_FilesCount - Gives the number of files

out_FileNames - Gives the list of files

Please note that the Search pattern must be {"*.xlsx", "*.doc", "*.pdf"} etc. or otherwise the Snippet will keep returning 0.

Features
