Sort into Subfolder Mon Jul 15, 2019 9:15 am • by MichaelTzu
Every month an invoice file with generic name "MPL Invoices for 06_June_2019" is moved to "2019 Invoices" folder.

The folder "2019 Invoices" has 12 sub-folders, one for each month with generic name "06_June_2019", "07_July_2019" etc.

Since the date element of the invoice file name changes each month, how can I get a name match in order to move file into correct monthly folder?

Look up "match patterns" in the help. In this particular case, you can use either a custom date or custom text attribute. You can then use the custom attribute in a Sort into subfolder action. In this particular case, since the text in the filename matches the folder name, I think a custom text attribute would be easier to use here.
