Create Folders from File

3 posts in this topic

I have a massive amount of files that I am trying to put into a certain directory structure. I have the file names in one text file and the directory name in the other. I am trying to read from both files and then move the corresponding file to the correct directory. The script is creating the directory structure fine, but it is not moving the files. Can someone check out this script and see what I am doing wrong.

Thank you

$dirlist = FileOpen("D:\termed041408\testdir.csv", 0)

$filelist = FileOpen("D:\termed041408\testlist.csv", 0)

$errorflag = 0

; Check if file opened for reading OK

 

If $dirlist = -1 Then

    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open directory file.")

    Exit

EndIf

 

If $filelist = -1 Then

    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open list of files.")

    Exit

EndIf

 

While 1

            $Dline = FileReadLine($dirlist)

            If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop

            $Pline = FileReadLine($filelist)

            DirCreate ("D:\termed041408\temp\" & $Dline & "\E-mail Data")

            DirCreate ("D:\termed041408\temp\" & $Dline & "\PC Drive Data")

            DirCreate ("D:\termed041408\temp\" & $Dline & "\Fileserver Data\H Drive")

            DirCreate ("D:\termed041408\temp\" & $Dline & "\Fileserver Data\Y Drive")

            FileMove ("D:\termed041408\temp\" & $Pline, "D:\termed041408\temp\" & $Dline & "\E-mail Data")

           ;If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop

Wend

 

FileClose($file)

FileClose($filelist)

make sure the file actually exists. at D:\termed041408\temp\$pline destination.

Check out the FileExists() func if you wanna add some error checking.

Also, not a Big deal, but at the end you do a FileClose($file), I think you mean FileClose($dirlist)

Awesome thank you very much. The FileExists() Func allowed me to figure out that I was pointing into the wrong directory. I have it fixed now...
