FileGetAttrib and Normal

8 posts in this topic

I assume that it is a normal file with no attributes set? Why would I have so many with ONLY 'N' and not all with 'A'.

Here is part of my script

$attrib = FileGetAttrib($dsoFile)
    ConsoleWrite("Attributes = " & $attrib & @CRLF)
    If StringInStr($attrib, "H") or StringInStr($attrib, "N") Then 
        Select
        Case StringInStr($attrib, "H")
            FileSetAttrib($dsoFile, "-H+A")
            ConsoleWrite("Attributes Changed = " & $attrib & @CRLF)
        Case StringInStr($attrib, "N")
            FileSetAttrib($dsoFile, "+A")   
            ConsoleWrite("Attributes = " & $attrib & @CRLF)
        Case Else
        EndSelect
    EndIf

When I run this - it never changes the NORMAL to ARCHIVED - am I doing something wrong?

FileSetAttrib($dsoFile, "-N+A")
Thanks - that should do it - not testing yet, but added it to the code from above?

I think the below code is more of the issue - if I can get it to work, or I have found the file that got me on the hidden attribute issue from the code above?

I am using ObjCreate() and have created function for ERRORS - $HexNumber=hex($oMyError.number,8) - it catches the error and displays the error

$HexNumber = 80020009

$oMyError.windescription = Access is denied.

I am trying to move it and rename it - filemove(), as I think that is what causing my script to quit.

I am able to move the file if I use this one line of code

FileMove("C:\test\IndividualForm1.doc", "c:\mydir\bak.doc",8)

But when I use it in my script it creates a directory but never moves the file - what could be hanging this up?

Any questions that I can answer - will have to wait until I get home - about 6 EST.

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

Try with FileCopy. If it works, I think the program has problem deleting file.

how typical file move works is it copies the file then delete the source. If it's unable to delete the source, it delete the target and fail.

Do you have the file open by anything before you try to move it?

Damb - I wish I would have thought of that, before asking for more help. That appears to have done the trick - I will still have to check it at work but it did past my test that I had tried before and had failed with out the closing of the object.

Let me ask you another question that will save me some time - if I close the object, is it just closing that instance or is it closing the object completelyl - and that would mean that I would have to reopen it, right?

Makes sense to me, as I would assume it would appear as a different file.
