Why I test the variables the YYYYDDMMHHMMSS on the $serverdate doesn't match what is the date. It is pulling the date the file was copied over. I want it to compare the dates of the first file with the server file, if the first one is newer (higher date number) then copy it over.

Anyone know what is wrong?

$serverdate = FileGetTime($serverfile, 1)
$linedate = FileGetTime($line, 1)
$serverfileexists = FileExists ($serverfile)
If $serverfileexists = 0 Then
      FileCopy($line, $serverfile,1)
Elseif $serverfileexists = 1 Then
    $linedate = $linedate[0]&$linedate[1]&$linedate[2]&$linedate[3]&$linedate[4]&$linedate[5]
      $serverdate = $serverdate[0]&$serverdate[1]&$serverdate[2]&$serverdate[3]&$serverdate[4]&$serverdate[5]
     If $linedate > $serverdate Then
         FileCopy($line, $serverfile,1)

Not sure, but redefining an array as a same-named single variable equal to its own elements seems a bit risky. Might be OK, to do this, but then might not. - Opinions, Gurus?

This one gets the time of a file in the standard AutoIt string format (which is YMD not YDM, BTW, otherwise numeric comparisons would be impossible. )

func FileDate($fdFile)
$fdTa = FileGetTime($fdFile)
if @error then
  MsgBox (0,"Date Error","Unable to get date of  " & $fdFile,10) 
  return "0"
$fdDate = $fdTa[0] & $fdTa[1] & $fdTa[2] & $fdTa[3] & $fdTa[4] & $fdTa[5] 
return $fdDate

Other point worth noting is that (according to MS) there is a small amount of "granularity" in file-times, therefore I'd allow a small increment in the comparison.
