Hello all.

This is an easy question for you but a big wall for me

Cant get the %#¤&"¤%&" thing to do what i want

I need to perform

"c:\cosids\bin\tbadm32.exe -i >a.txt"

and

"c:\cosids\bin\tbadm32 -Cf spssaabdb r=." in folder c:\cosids\DB\SPSSAABDB

As far as I can see, you want this?

ShellExecuteWait ("c:\cosids\bin\tbadm32.exe", "-i >a.txt")
ShellExecuteWait ("c:\cosids\bin\tbadm32", "-Cf spssaabdb r=.", "c:\cosids\DB\SPSSAABDB")
---------------------------------------------

Hmmm, i dont get what i want

Cant find the file from ShellExecuteWait ("c:\cosids\bin\tbadm32.exe", "-i >a.txt")

I think i have tried your solution, the problem might be something else.

Lets take it from the beginning

I need to run for example c:\cosids\bin\tbadm32.exe -i > c:\tmp\output.txt

so i can use the result

I have tried

$CosidsFolder = "c:\cosids"

$Command = @ComSpec & " /c " & $CosidsFolder & '\bin\tbadm32.exe '& '-i' & '>output.txt' (Cant realy get the hang of this code)

Run($Command, "", @SW_HIDE)

This works, but i need to wait for it to end and understood that ShellExecuteWait was the way to go.

What is the best way for me to get the resutl i need?
