Can someone help me build a quick Automator Workflow?

    Here is what I need:


    1. find four specific .gz files in my downloads directory

    2. unarchive them using Archive Utility (I'm good up until here)

    3. Once finished, delete the original .gz files (I inserted this action after the one above, and Automator deleted the .gz files before they could be unarchived)

    4. Move the new files to a new location (which have the same filename, just without any file extension, they are simple text files)

    Would I need to create two separate workflows and then run them one after the other via AppleScript?

    Is anyone willing to help a fellow Mac user out here? Thanks in advance!!!

    Never mind, I figured it out!

    Automator is an amazing application.
