Rename a *.xml to a String Variable

Recommended Posts

RichardT

Hello Again!

I am trying to do something easy I bet, but am at a loss. I need to rename a file called AMT000.xml to the name of a variable ($sInput) with a .xml extention. The file AMT000.xml gets written with an output of a WLAN profile. I need the name to change so I can import it in to a system with the new name. I am trying to automate it, but I do not know how to use the variable? I get the $sInput from an InputBox.

Thoughts?

Code?

No code?

Helpfile lookup?

FileMove()

Sorry. This is the command I am using to create the file...

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & "WLAN.exe gp 70768bfc-d0e8-4630-a985-8843575194af AMT000.xml")

The file will look like this:

********************************Beging output*********************************

The return profile xml is:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<WLANProfile xmlns="http://www.microsoft.com/networking/WLAN/profile/v1">

<name>AMT000</name>

<SSIDConfig>

<SSID>

<hex>414D54303030</hex>

<name>AMT000</name>

</SSID>

</SSIDConfig>

<connectionType>ESS</connectionType>

<MSM>

<security>

<authEncryption>

<authentication>WPA2PSK</authentication>

<encryption>AES</encryption>

<useOneX>false</useOneX>

</authEncryption>

<sharedKey>

<keyType>networkKey</keyType>

<protected>false</protected>

<keyMaterial>B961A4F20B0B81293EB70EF6B56AE2CB3316DD885B38D43B0CDB5868CE832FB1</keyMaterial>

</sharedKey>

</security>

</MSM>

</WLANProfile>

Command "gp" completed successfully.

************************************End output*******************************

I run another snippet that replaces text:

$sFileName = "AMT000.xml"

$sFindText = "<name>AMT000</name>"

$sReplaceText = "<name>" & $sInput & "</name>"

$sFileContents = FileRead($sFileName)

$sFileContents = StringReplace($sFileContents, $sFindText, $sReplaceText)

FileDelete($sFileName)

FileWrite($sFileName,$sFileContents)

Now I have to rename the file with the variable name $sInput with a .xml extention.

Aren't you overcomplicating the baby?

Couldn't you create the file with the right name in the first place?

If really no, then:

$sFileName = "AMT000.xml"

$sFindText = "<name>AMT000</name>"

$sReplaceText = "<name>" & $sInput & "</name>"

$sFileContents = FileRead($sFileName)

$sFileContents = StringReplace($sFileContents, $sFindText, $sReplaceText)

FileDelete($sFileName)

FileWrite($sInput & '.xml', $sFileContents)

Else, as I said (albeit a bit dry) FileMove()

Thanks for the Help!! I wish I could, but I work for a train company, and a profile has to be uploaded to every P42 GE engines, which there are ove 325 of them. I don't want to touch all of these because the FRA inspectors need access via WIFI. (freakin government losers).

Again, thanks for your help!!

No problem, you're welcome. This one was easy, but the important point is that it works for you then you've learned to FileMove() in case you need it some day.
