What the heck am I missing?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am a relative newbie to Auto IT. I was tasked to develop automation for a proprietary software we used as a CRM. 

As with a lot of people out there I am now working from home via GoToMyPC. My script worked yesterday. Now it doesn't work past my blocks that create directories for moving old files.

Can anyone help?

Here is a sample of my code. It's nothing fancy but the process doesn't get past the first mouseclick function. What am I missing?

#include <Array.au3>
#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <WinAPIShPath.au3>
#include <FileConstants.au3>
#include <Date.au3>

;creates path to move last MtD files
DirCreate("creates directory")
DirCreate("creates directory")
DirCreate("creates directory")
DirCreate("creates directory")
DirCreate("creates directory")
DirCreate("creates directory")
DirCreate("creates directory")
DirCreate("creates directory")

FileMove("moves file")
FileMove("moves file")
FileMove("moves file")
FileMove("moves file")
FileMove("moves file")
FileMove("moves file")
FileMove("moves file")
Filemove("moves file")

;starts process for first comprehensive report
MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT, 36, 132 ,2)

Put some error checks after each statement, so you know what is going on.  Check return value and @error.  ConsoleWrite them.  Post Scite console if you don't find anything...

Also read the help file on FileMove, specifically the last flag parameter, which can create your folder path and also allow overwriting of files.

Thanks! Filemove has been working as expected for me in the block I posted, it's everything afterwards that has all of a sudden stopped. 

I'm on GoToMyPC due to working from home via the virus crisis...but it worked yesterday. I haven't found any indication it's experiencing any kind of error yet...but I do need to put more handling in to make sure.

Our IT guy had to reinstall some drivers for my monitors at work. There was some kind of an odd conflict with that and GoToMyPC. I've got this problem solved. Thank you!
