Trying to name a folder using input from a string

3 posts in this topic

I am am PC hardware and Network guy who is just getting his feet wet with AutoIT. I am trying to gather patient info, then I would like to use that info to create a directory named patient last name first name DOB. (EX. Jones Bob 09-16-76) I have spent some time trying to figure this out with no luck. I would be very appreciative of any help. Thanks! Below is what I have thus far....

$Patient_Last_Name = InputBox("Please enter", "Patient Last Name", "", "", -1, -1, 0, 0)
$Patient_First_Name = InputBox("Please enter", "Patient First Name", "", "", -1, -1, 0, 0)
$Patient_DOB = InputBox("Please enter", "Patient DOB", "", "", -1, -1, 0, 0)
MsgBox (64, "Patient Folder Wizard", $Patient_Last_Name)
MsgBox (64, "Patient Folder Wizard", $Patient_First_Name)
MsgBox (64, "Patient Folder Wizard", $Patient_DOB)
DirCreate C:\Documents and Settings\Eric\Desktop\AIT\$Patient_Last_Name

If NOT FileExists($Fldr_Name) Then DirCreate($Fldr_Name)
