Specify file to write data into. Write to File Action supports both binary data and Unicode text. If specified file does not exist, it will be created automatically.
|File||Specify file the data will be written to.|
|Text to write||Input some fixed text to be written to file each time Action is executed or use variables to write relevant Task or system relative text.|
|Browse||Use Browse to select a particular file or folder on local disk, network share on LAN (local area network), etc.|
|Variable Wizard||Use dynamic data input—substitute a parameter from a file, connected Trigger, other Actions, date and time presets, etc.|
- Automation Workshop supports Unicode file names, and path up to 32,000 characters.
- The maximum text block that can be written (or appended) to a file is 4GB. For ASCII the limit is about 4 billion and for Unicode—2 billion characters.
- Files written by Write File Action can be 2 or 3 bytes bigger than the original amount of text, if saved in the Unicode UTF-8 or UTF-16 format. Those bytes are the Unicode encoding signature (BOM) and are saved at the beginning of the file.
