Hello,

This sample is regarding the Dialog "Open".

You will need to create a file .txt in 'C:\temp' that you will be calling.

1. Paste the steps below into Task Builder
2. When step 2 runs you will need to manually select the .txt file that you will want Automate to open. This file (with location) will populate a variable.
3. The Dialog 'Open' action will open the file.

Hello,

This sample is regarding the Dialog "Save File".

1. Paste the steps below into Task Builder
2. Run the steps
3. When step 3 runs you will need to add a filename to the "Save File" window that appears --> add the filename and click save
4. Notepad will run and add today's date and time and save the file
5. Manually open C:\temp and open the file you created and check for results.
