Open a txt file with wild card

Recommended Posts

I'm using this

Run("notepad.exe "&@Scriptdir&"\*.txt",@WindowsDir,)

To open a txt file that the file name will change from computer to computer but it will end with .txt . so how would I open the only txt file that will be in the main folder ?

Right now it gives me an error that it can't find the file .

I know I'm a pest .. lol

I should add a bat file is making the txt file and getting the name from the computer . so if it was johns computer it would be john.txt :D

Untested code, but should point you to the right functions in the help file. Also see FAQ #7 & 9 in the help file for issues about quotation marks.

$searchHandle = FileFindFirstFile( @Scriptdir & "\*.txt" )
If $searchHandle = -1 Then
   MsgBox(4096,"Error","File not found...quitting.)
$filename = FileFindNextFile($searchHandle)

Run("notepad.exe " & """" & $filename & """",@WindowsDir)

Edit: Neeed to put a space after notepad.exe

MsgBox(4096,"Error",^ ERROR

Error: String missing closing quote.
