Post Date/File log grabs Reply with quote

Assuming that all variables are defined. Basically what I'm trying to do is run a batch file with two command line arguments. However, this isn't quite working. Any ideas? I could possibly be using the file_name object wrong, i extended on one of the provided scripts, but i'm not sure quite where to go from here.

// Get todays's date
Today( today )
// Calculate yesterday's date
DateAdd( today, -1, yesterday )
// Convert to string in mmddyyyy format
Concat( file_name, "ex", file_name)
Concat( yesterday, "yymmdd", file_name )
//Append file extension
Concat( file_name, ".dat", file_name )

Concat( "c:\bin\make.bat ", @DP"yyyymm", command )
RunAndWait( command, "c:\bin",0, process_id )
RunAndWait( "c:\bin\logpull.exe", "c:\bin", 0, process_id)
Concat ("c:\bin\doit.bat ",@DP"yyyymm", command2 )
Concat (command2, file_name, command2)
Run (command2, "c:\bin", process_id)

What did you want to do in line > ?

It looks like you are trying to something like the following:
Concat( "c:\bin\make.bat ", @DP"yyyymm", command )

Concat ("ex", @DP"mmddyyyy", command2 )
Concat ("c:\bin\doit.bat ", command2, command2)
Concat (command2, ".dat", command2)

RunAndWait( command, "c:\bin", 0, process_id )
RunAndWait( "c:\bin\logpull.exe", "c:\bin", 0, process_id)
Run (command2, "c:\bin", process_id)

This might help a little more, i found something:
Basically, i'm looking to create a file_name object with the exyymmdd.dat
type of file, then pass it as the second argument to a batch file (doit.bat)

---cut----
// Get todays's date
Today( today )
// Calculate yesterday's date
DateAdd( today, -1, yesterday )
// Convert to string in mmddyyyy format
Format( yesterday, "yymmdd", file_name)
//Append file extension
Concat( "ex", file_name, file)
Concat( file, ".dat", file)

Concat( "c:\bin\make.bat ", @DP"yyyymm", command )
RunAndWait( command, "c:\bin",0, process_id )
//RunAndWait( "c:\bin\logpull.exe", "c:\bin", 0, process_id)
Concat ("c:\bin\doit.bat ",file, command2 )
//Concat (command2, file , command2)
Run (command, "c:\bin", process_id)

---cut-----

I figured that part out, the problem i'm having is passing two arguments to the batch file.

: Concat( "ex", @DP"yymmdd", file_name )
: Concat( file_name, ".dat", file_name )

So you want to concatenate 3 pieces into one piece?

Concat( a, b, temp )
Concat( temp, c, result )

or even simplier (assuming that result = a in the beginning)

Concat( result, b, result )
Concat( result, c, result )

This is what i have:

---cut---
Concat ("c:\bin\doit.bat ",@DP"yymmdd", command2 )
Concat (command2, file_name , command2)
Run (command2, "c:\bin", process_id)
---cut---

doit.bat is a batch file that wants to cd into \%1 (which should be the date) and then do something, and then copy file %2 (file_name). However, it's not even doing the cd right. It's staying right in the bin directory.

Have you looked at the trace file? If not please turn on tracing in the Preferences. This will tell you where the script/or batch do not work as expected.

I see now where the problem is, it's what i thought. It's not putting a space between the two arguments. Instead of running doit.bat 200001 ex000125.dat it's running "doit.bat 200001ex000125.dat"
