FileRead?

8 posts in this topic

Hi all,

can someone help.

I want to delete a piece of text in a file. I can find the text no problem using FileReadLine (it will be an entire line being deleted at a time) but I'm struggling to delete it.

here is what I have so far...

If $enable = 6 Then

$file = FileOpen("C:\text.txt", 0)

; Check file opened OK

If $file = -1 Then Exit

; check existence of text

While 1

$line = FileReadLine($file)

If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop

; MsgBox(0, "Line read:", $line)

if $en = $line Then

EndIf

Wend

FileClose($file)

You can try to copy the data in the .txt and paste it into an Excel document, and use locodarwin's Excel UDF. There, you can specify more directly the cells you want to delete.

If you choose this method, and you get stuck somewhere, let me know, because I'm playing with this UDF for quite a long time, and I'll be able to help you :)

$Ret = _FileDeleteLine("Test.txt", "Some text")

;@extended is how many time the line was deleted
ConsoleWrite("Return: " & $Ret & ", @extended: " & @extended & @LF)

Func _FileDeleteLine($sFile, $sLine)
    Local $sCurrent_Line, $iExtended = 0, $sFile_Content = ""
    
    Local $hFileOpen = FileOpen($sFile, 0)
    If $hFileOpen = -1 Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    
    While 1
        $sCurrent_Line = FileReadLine($hFileOpen)
        If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
        
        If $sCurrent_Line <> $sLine Then
            $sFile_Content &= $sCurrent_Line & @CRLF
        Else
            $iExtended += 1
        EndIf
    WEnd
    
    FileClose($hFileOpen)
    
    $hFileOpen = FileOpen($sFile, 2)
    FileWrite($hFileOpen, $sFile_Content)
    FileClose($hFileOpen)
    
    Return SetError(0, $iExtended, 1)
EndFunc

Thanks for replies..

MrCreatoR when I run this I get an error:

'ERROR: SetError() [built-in] called with wrong number of args.'

Is this something I am doing wrong??

sorry if I'm sounding a bit feeble but I'm an occasional programmer so this is stretching me a bit.

Thanks
