fileRead

7 posts in this topic

I want to read from a file present in a different folder than the script.

$file = FileOpen('C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Desktop\Shortcuts\Info.txt', 0)

; Check if file opened for reading OK

If $file = -1 Then

MsgBox(4096, "error......", "Unable to open the file from a different folder........what to do?", 100)

Exit(0)

EndIf

Thanks in advance.

There are macros for that.

Look in the helpfile for macros. I like to use the index listing of the helpfile so I can see everything in a list. Look in the index for things beginning with @. Lots of useful stuff there.
