Im new to autoit and just wondering is it possible to get autoit to compare the names of .png files in one folder with names in column 1 of a csv file and move them into other folders via data in column 2.


"personsname.png" is in folder called "c:\allpics" all 900+ of them

I have a csv file with 2 columns populated, column 1 is the same name as the personsname.png and column 2 is the folder i want them moved to e.g. 8x,8y.8z.

So the script would run compare the name of the .png to column 1 and move it to the corresponding folder name of cloumn 2.

hope you can help.

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. ;)

AutoIt can do what you want very simply. You will need to get the data from the csv file into an array (_FileReadToArray will do this) and then get the png files into another array (here you would use _FileListToArray). Once you have the 2 arrays, you then loop through the list of files (use For...Next here) and look for each one in the csv array (_ArraySearch is the command to use) - when you find a match you extract the folder data from the same element and then use FileMove to move the file.

Give it a go and see how you get on - you know where we are if you run into difficulties. :)
