Hi,



I want to read an Excel file in the watched folder in a readDocument process step. When the process tries to open the Excel file I get an access denied error for the watched folder. The administrator user has full control over the watched folder and the Excel file is not read-only.



Is there something wrong with my watched folder settings?

Where does the error appear? Did you set the userid and password for the watch folder in it setup?

If you're setting up a watch folder, you don't need to use a readDocument step - you just need to define an input variable of type Document, and the watch folder does the rest.

I suspect you're getting an error because the WatchFolder code and your readDocument step are both trying to read the same document.
