ArrayDisplay/FileListToArray/ArraySearch Problem....

Recommended Posts

Problem: As soon as the script gets to a folder that does not contain a file I am searching for, it stops rather than continuing until it finds the next folder with the specified file. What is going on?


Also, sometimes the files are in a folder one level down (of which I do not know the name of), how do drill down to the next folder to find the file if it is not in the original source folder?




#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <FileOperations.au3>

Global $aPartial, $sFilePath = "arrlistTextFile.txt", $aFull = _FileListToArray("C:\SourceDir\",Default,$FLTA_FOLDERS), $sSourceDir = "C:\SourceDir\"
Global $sDestination = "D:\DestinationDir\"

Func CopyFiles()
_FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aPartial)

For $i = 0 To UBound($aPartial) - 1
    $iIndex = _ArraySearch($aFull, $aPartial[$i], 0, 0, 0, 1) ; $iCompare = 1 executes a partial search
    If @error Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Error", "No match for: " & $aPartial[$i])

        $createDir = $sDestination & $aPartial[$i]

        $sSourcePath = $sSourceDir & $aFull[$iIndex]

        $sFindFile2 = _FileListToArray($sSourcePath,"*TABWT*", Default, True)
        $_sFile2 = _ArrayDisplay($sFindFile2)

Running a slightly modified version of that code on my folder structure works perfectly - it does not stop when no files are found in a folder. Why do you think it does?

To search deeper in the tree, you need to use _FileListToArrayRec - the Help file explains in detail how to use it.

Thanks. I just got unlucky when I was selecting folders to view. Your right. I got it solved. All files are copied to to their correct location.


Thanks all!
