Hi folks!

I've got a little bit of a problem here i am currently programming a script and i need the possibility of opening Files which contain non alpha numeric characters (such as spaces for example).

so here is my script.

$txt2 = Fileopen($rootfiledir&"\"&$Dir&"\info.txt", 2)

so if $dir is something like:abcd everything works fine but if $Dir is something like "a folder" its got problems with opening the info.txt.

I really hope someone can give me a hand with this problem since the programm must work today when i show it to my boss.

Greeting Ancient

The following code works for me:

$drive = @HomeDrive
$folder = "a folder name"
DirCreate($drive & "\" & $folder)
$test = FileOpen($drive & "\" & $folder & "\test.txt", 2)
FileWrite($test, "this line is a test line")
Run('notepad.exe "' & $drive & "\" & $folder & '\test.txt"')
While WinExists("test.txt")
If MsgBox(4, "remove temp files", "would you like to remove the " & _
 "temporary file and directory created?") = 7 Then Exit
FileDelete($drive & "\" & $folder & "\test.txt")
DirRemove($drive & "\" & $folder)

A filename (in windows) must not contain a character like " so no program would be able to open that file.

But I guess you want to open a file called

$rootfiledir & '\' & $Dir & '\info.txt'
