Filename + 1

7 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

im working on a script that creates a file named xxxxx0.csv, and if already exists then name it xxxxx1.csv and so on.

problem is the loop freezes every time.. :)

here is the code:

$num = 0
$name = @ComputerName & "_perfmon_" & $num
$path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"'

Do
    sleep(50)
    $num += 1

    $name = @ComputerName & "_perfmon_" & $num ;redundant? i try without this two lines anyways
    $path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"'

Until not FileExists($path)

rest of the code..

i also try with While

$num = 0
$name = @ComputerName & "_perfmon_" & $num
$path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"'

while 1
    sleep(50)
    If not FileExists($path) Then
        ExitLoop
    Else        
        $num += 1
        $name = $computername & "_perfmon_" & $num ;same with and without
        $path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"' ;same with and without
    EndIf
WEnd

also tried this..

$num = 0
$name = @ComputerName & "_perfmon_" & $num
$path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"'
$var = FileExists($path)

While $var = 1
    $num += 1
    $name = @ComputerName & "_perfmon_" & $num
    $path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"'
    $var = FileExists($path)
WEnd

When the file does not exist the program works fine but when it does the program freezes.

i try putting a MsgBox right after the while for debugging and it never comes up.. so the program is not looping, just freezing..

any ideas??

thanks!!

Maybe it is because your file path contains '"' and they are not allowed in filename.

Mmm. Try not to include those ["] quotes with FileExists()

$path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"'
$path = 'C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv'

Add them when needed. -> Run*()

This line looks wierd to me

$path = '"C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv"'

Try $path = 'C:\PerfLogs\' & $name & '.csv'

you are both right also.

thanks for the answers!
