Hi everyone, Iam very new to scripting... I have written a script to create the table from existing database to other existing database.

the script works fine when the data base is hardcoded but when use fileopendialog to select the database the script doesnot function could naot able to understand where iam going wrong. Here is my script, I would be great support if i get any help.

#include "MS_AccessDB1.au3"

Const $conDbFile1 = "RHD_system_run_3_2610.mdb" ;
Const $conDbFile2 = "Template1.mdb" ;
$surveyname= "_RHD_system_run_3_2610"

 $o_Database1 = MS_AccessDatabaseConnect(@ScriptDir & "\" & $conDbFile1)

 If $o_Database1 = 0 Then
    MsgBox(16, "Error", "Database File is not found " & @error & @LF & @ScriptDir & "\" & $conDbFile1)
    ;MsgBox(0, "", "found DB1")

 $o_Database2 = MS_AccessDatabaseConnect(@ScriptDir & "\" & $conDbFile2)
 If $o_Database2 = 0 Then
    MsgBox(16, "Error", "Database File is not found " & @LF & @ScriptDir & "\" & $conDbFile2)
    ;MsgBox(0, "", "found DB2")

As explained in the Help file, a successful call to FileOpenDialog changes the @WorkingDir and I imagine that is the cause of your problems. So either save and reset @WorkingDir (preferable) or hardcode the paths that might be affected.


P.S When you post code please use Code tags - see here how to do it.  Then you get a scrolling box and syntax colouring as you can see above now I have added the tags.
