Office 2010 Migration script

Recommended Posts


First off I am new to autoit and scripting. I have to migrate files from office 2003 format to office 2010. I am going to use OMPM and in the end I am going to have a folder of converted Office 2003 files with the office 2010 format so the file extensions are going to change. My thing is I want to move the files from the converted folder to the source folder and purge out all the old office 2003 files that the file name matches excluding the file extension. Example in a folder there will be multiple files but only 1 with same file name... Test.doc and Test.docx I need to remove only the test.doc from the dir and sub directories if other file names matchs other files.

File extensions of files that will need to be purged if another file has the same name.




Any help on this would be great or being able to point me in the right direction.

Thank you.

This is pretty basic but it will give you the general idea.

Use FileChangeDir() to change the working folder to the folder containing the files you want to replace.

$sFile = "Test.doc"

If FileExists("$sFile") AND FileExists("path\test.docx") Then
    FileCopy("path\test.docx", "test.docx")

I don't remember all the file extension changes involved but personally I would just copy them all over and then use a loop to test for and delete the files that need purging. And I would probably do it with a RegExp to test for the duplicates.

Like I said, this is all just generaality.
