Hello Everyone,

I'm hoping the forum is the correct place to post this. I'm needing a bit of assistance with a project I've created within Email Parser. We receive an email that has an attachment named "PO Document No.: 1234567890.pdf" with a different PO number each email. We only want to save the file with the actual PO number and file extension.

I've created a Parser "Parse Email 2" that captures the Field AttachedFileName. "Email Attachment Name Modification 2" finds the text with a regular expression (PO Document No..) and removes it along with removing leading spaces and retains the file extension (Image 1). The testing area shows the desired output.

Next I have "Action 2" that checks if the attachment is a PDF and if it is continues onward (Image 2).

Now we have reached the Save current email attachments action "Save Attached PDF 2" which is saving the attachment to "C:\Documents\Incoming" only if it is a *.pdf attachment type (Image 3). At this step I'd like to know how to save the file with the filename modification from image 1 or if there is a different way I should be performing this. All of my attempt have ended with the file saving as the original filename format of "PO Document No.: 1234567890.pdf" rather than "1234567890.pdf".

Any assistance would be appreciated!


By the way, wonderful product!

Hi Glen,

Thanks for all the details and the screenshots. This is something that is asked from time to time by email and it is great to have a good example in the forum.

You have to rename the saved PDF with an action of type "Run command under Windows command prompt". The rename command is this one:

Code: Select allrename "<%SavedAttachmentPath%>" "<%Email Attachment Name Modification 2%>"

The field "SavedAttachmentPath" field is created by the action that saves the attachment. Some screenshots attached to show how it works.

By the way, wonderful product!

Thanks! :)
Worked Beautifully! Thank you Carlos.

I wish I could get this responsive of support from other vendors!
