File Properties - Summary/Comments

Recommended Posts

fhanna

I would like to determine if a file exists, if so, retrieve the Comments, and if the Comments do not match my criteria, save the file with a new name and providing text to the new file Comments property.

Know how to do all except retrieve the file Comments property and save a file with Comments.

Any suggestins and support is greatly appreciated.

Thanks again for this forum.

More specifically:

$testString = "bla bla bla"
$fileName = "somefile.doc"

If FileExists($fileName) Then
    $comments = FileGetVersion ( $fileName, "Comments")
    If $comments <> $testString Then
        MsgBox(0,"","File does not match")
        ;Set comments????
    FileMove($fileName, $outfileName)
    EndIf
EndIf

Thank you for the post. Close but not what I was looking for. Want to retain original file and create a new file with new Comments.

Sorta like this: A file exist. If the Comments match a criteria then a new file will be created; old file will remain intact and the new file will have comments provided in the Comments field. Was thinking on the order of _GetExtProperty function and whatever is needed to add Comments to newly created file.

Thanks again.
