Problems With Dircopy

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

DirCopy will return an error every time if I give it the source and dest with variables, if I give it the same locations as simple strings, it works... but if I wanted it hard coded, I'd just make a looping bat file... (heh, like I can tell my users to do anything at a command line...)

Do
   $source = FileSelectFolder("Select the drive to copy files from." & @CR & "This should be your removable media such as a floppy or CD drive", "", 0)
      if @error = 1 then exit
   $dest = FileSelectFolder("Select the destination for the files" & @CR & "This should be your network location like a folder on the I drive", "", 1)
      if @error = 1 then exit
   $confirm = MsgBox(3, "Confirm Copy", "This will copy all files from " & $source & " to " & $dest & @CR & "Are you sure?") 

   If $confirm = 2 then exit

Until $confirm = 6

Do

   MsgBox(0, "Insert Disk", "Insert disk to copy." & @CR & "This will copy all files from " & $source & " to " & $dest,"") 
   DirCopy($source,$dest,0)
   if @error = 0 then MsgBox(0, "error","there was a problem.  check it out","")
   $another = MsgBox(4, "Copy another?", "Would you like to copy another disk to the same location?","")

Until $another = 7

don't think you are testing correctly.... you test @error but the helpfile says return value...

Shouldn't it be this way??

$rc = DirCopy($SOURCE,$DEST,0)
If $rc = 0 Then MsgBox(0, "error","there was a problem.  check it out","")

thanks, didn't realize the difference. it's still not copying files.

I tried it without the FileSelectFolder and all that other jazz, like this:

$source = "A:\"
$dest = "C:\TEMP\"
   
   DirCopy( "A:\" , "C:\TEMP\" , 0 )

just figured it out... having the overwrite set to 0 meant that it wouldn't even copy the files into the folder as long as the folder existed...
