Recommended Posts

hey guys

what i want to do is this:

i want the script to ask me few Qs, then take the values from the Qs and put it in a cmd command

the cmd command syntax is:

makecoll.exe <file> <collection> <server>

i want the <file> and <collection> values to be added with the input command by a user, is it possible?

i tried:

$file = InputBox("Script", "Enter File name and path(c:\filename.txt):", "")
$coll = InputBox("Script", "Enter the new collection name:", "")

Run(@ComSpec & "   /k c:\makecoll.exe "$file" "$coll" vmsmsprm -U:nasulin")

the script runs with no errors but the makecoll command uses $file and not the value it has in it... :S

cheers
