    Default Count files before Get file names step

    Is there a way to count zip files in a directory using a wildcard before running the 'Get file names' step.

    I would like to evaluate whether there are files in the directory before running the 'Get file names' step so I can log that there were no files to process.

    I tried the 'Detect empty stream' step after the Get file name step. It works but I can't reuse the 'Get rows from result' step values (in a earlier step before the the 'Get file name step') in the log message.

    Something like this should do it, just modify the directory in both "Get File Names" steps: File Count.ktr
