Set variable based on folder if file exists in folder

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I have been searching for this for some time and I am not sure even if I am searching the forums right at this point. Right now I am doing something via command line and I would prefer to do it in AutoIT.

Right now the command line script looks like this:

for /f "tokens=6 delims=\" %%1 in ('dir "\\remotecomputer\share\main_folder\%file_name%" /s /b') do set sub_folder=%%1

%file_name% is what I am searching for inside the folder and I would like the to know what %sub_folder% is.

The actual location of the file is: \\remotecomputer\share\main_folder\sub_folder\%file_name%

This works with the for /f but I don't know how to get this in AutoIT. Thanks for any help.

Try the example scripts in the help file under FileFindFirstFile() and FileFindNextFile(). You can also use _FileListToArray().
