FileMove

4 posts in this topic

Trying to move a file from a server to "All Users" folder, and replace existing. Runs but does not move the file.

Source, destination, and flag OK?

Thank for any assistance.

FileMove("\\server\folder1\folder2\testmovefile*", "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\folder1\folder2\testmovefile*", 1)

If you are going to use wildcards in the source, only give the folder for the destination with the trailing backslash:

FileMove("\\server\folder1\folder2\testmovefile*", "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\folder1\folder2\", 1+8)

The help file for FileMove() plainly says you can use wildcards in the destination, but I'm not sure how that would work or what the resolution logic would be.

:)

Edit: Added +8 to the parms for create directories as requiered, per lod3n. Still don't get the wildcard in the destination though...

Thanks for the replies

I should have been using FileCopy in the first place. The code below works great btw. (overwriting same file name w/new data on the exisiting directory)

FileCopy("\\server\folder1\folder2\testmovefile*", "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\folder1\folder2\", 9)

Have a great weekend.
