My c# console application reads data from a excelsheet which is located at C:\Data and my c# console app can be installed in any directory in the system and my requirement is to move the excelsheet to the same location as my c# console application,so that means i won't be providing path specificly to move the excelsheet and i wan't to know how to specify the path in File.Move() or the code so that whereever my app will be installed the excelsheet should go there after it is processed.

Erhm, you question is pretty unclear. Do you want to move the file to the location where your app is installed?

Since Windows Vista there are a couple of 'rules' you need to know before transferring files on a windows machine from one to another location. Thing is a mechanism called UAC will bother you.

There are a couple of locations you can access files, and a couple of locations that will surely throw an exception and deny your file copy/move/delete command unless your application is running with elevated permissions.

So as stated in my comments I still don't really understand your question, but I've seen enough to give you at least this warning.

Move Excel file from C:\Data\ to executable folder ;)

For further information, please, see: Application Startup and Executable Path[^]
