FileSystem Object Ordering Files By Date 160+ points

Im Writing an application to Zip Up IIS4 Log Files using the winzip command line addon but I need to Move all files in the folder Except The One Were the last modified is the most recent.

Is there a way that i could list all files but exclude the most recent last modified file alone.

I will raise it to 160 point if i get the right answer and code im looking for im in desperate need of this code as i have 24hours to finish building this new web server

Regards

John Deakin

Yes !
1.To have list of files in your folder you can use the Dir function .
2.To detect file date you can use some API's like in this code :

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim ret As Long
Dim FileHandle As Long
Dim FileInfo As BY_HANDLE_FILE_INFORMATION
Dim lpReOpenBuff As OFSTRUCT
Dim FileTime As SYSTEMTIME

FileHandle = OpenFile("c:\autoexec.bat", lpReOpenBuff, OF_READ)
ret = GetFileInformationByHandle(FileHandle, FileInfo)

ret = FileTimeToSystemTime(FileInfo.ftCreationTime, FileTime)
Print "File created on " & FileTime.wYear, FileTime.wMonth, FileTime.wDay

ret = FileTimeToSystemTime(FileInfo.ftLastAccessTime, FileTime)
Print "File last accessed on: " & FileTime.wYear, FileTime.wMonth,
FileTime.wDay

ret = FileTimeToSystemTime(FileInfo.ftLastWriteTime, FileTime)
Print "File last written to: " & FileTime.wYear, FileTime.wMonth,
FileTime.wDay

Print "File attributes are: " & FileInfo.dwFileAttributes


ret = CloseHandle(FileHandle)
End Sub

In a .bas module

The code Im Looking at looks a little too much im looking for a straight answer to this how to order files by data modified or maybe place all the files in an array and order them by most recent modified so i could do a nasty little hack for the moment and do

for I = 1 to somearray

......
Next

The code im using is to list files is

sub ShowFileList(folderspec)
  Dim fso, f, f1, fc, s
  Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
  Set f = fso.GetFolder(folderspec)
  Set fc = f.Files
  For Each f1 in fc
    s = s & f1.name
    s = s &  vbcrlf
      s = s & "Created: " & f1.DateCreated & vbcrlf
    s = s &  "Last Accessed: "& f1.DateLastAccessed & vbcrlf
    s = s &  "Last Accessed: " & f1.DateLastModified & vbcrlf & vbcrlf
  Next
  Response.Write(s)
End sub


ShowFileList "C:\"

The code i've tried was a test i done in asp basically I just wanna list all files minus one were the datamodified is the most recent.

In the vb app im using access 2000 to store my schedules for the IIS logs and vb as the interface but i need the file system to list the files.

I can list the files just not order them by date basically i need to find the lowest modified file and the highest but one and then the winzzip command will just be say the lowestfile is 21/01/2000 and the highestfile is 29/01/2000 and the file before that is the 28/01/2000

I wanna file the 28/01/2000 as the ones to zip up to


wzzip -r{d} 21/01/2000 - 28/01/2000 "C:\winnt\system32\Inetsrv\Logs\w3scv4\*.*"

Store your information in a in-memory recordset this way:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    ShowFileList "D:\Emoreau\FDT\"
End Sub

Sub ShowFileList(folderspec)
Dim fso As FileSystemObject
Dim f As Folder
Dim f1 As File
Dim rstMemory As ADODB.Recordset

    Set rstMemory = New ADODB.Recordset
    With rstMemory
        .CursorLocation = adUseClient
        .LockType = adLockPessimistic
        .Fields.Append "Name", adVarChar, 100
        .Fields.Append "Created", adDate
        .Fields.Append "LastAccessed", adDate
        .Fields.Append "LastModified", adDate
        .Fields.Append "Attributes", adVarChar, 10
        .Fields.Append "Size", adDouble
        .Fields.Append "Type", adVarChar, 100
        .Open
       
        Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
        Set f = fso.GetFolder(folderspec)
        For Each f1 In f.Files
            .AddNew
            !Name = f1.Name
            !Created = f1.DateCreated
            !LastAccessed = f1.DateLastAccessed
            !LastModified = f1.DateLastModified
            !Attributes = f1.Attributes
            !Size = f1.Size
            !Type = f1.Type
            .Update
        Next
    End With
   
    MsgBox rstMemory.RecordCount
   
End Sub

Once in the recordset, data can be sorted, filtered, find, saved, ...

emoreau's answer seems to be the best answer.  If that doesn't work you can do a datediff on the lastmodified property and sort the files that way.

ye i done something similar in asp for deleting files

DeleteFilesInFolder(folder_name,time_interval,time_no,del_file_ext)

  Dim fso, f, f1, fc
  Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
  Set f = fso.GetFolder(server.MapPath("\") & "\" & folder_name)
  Set fc = f.Files
  For Each f1 in fc
 file_ext = right(f1.name,len(f1.name) - instrrev(f1.name,"."))
 if file_ext = del_file_ext then
  if datediff(time_interval,f1.datecreated,now)>time_no then
   f1.delete
  end if
 end if
  Next

emoreau's Or anyone else tell you what if anyone wants to do some co development on this you can have all my points. for this and maybe even bargain for some of my future points.

I hope I'm understanding your problem correctly.  You need to get the most recent file and the least recent file?

---------------------------------------
Dim min As Date
   
Set fso = CreateObject("scripting.filesystemobject")

Set f = fso.GetFolder(theFoldername)
Set fc = f.Files
min = Now
   
For Each file In fc
  If file.datelastmodified < min Then
    min = file.datelastmodified
  End If
Next
   
Debug.Print min

---------------------------------------
This should get you the least recent.  If you change the line "if file.datelastmodified < min then" to "if file.datelastmodified > min then" it should return the most recent.  If you need the files between these time intervals then it should be a piece of cake to write code to return them.  I hope this is what you're looking for.

Gebra Kind of what i need is the lowest file and the lowest but one file you see im trying to create an app to compress IIS4 Log files on a schedule you see I need to leave the active log alone and take the rest so it would'nt always = now only 70% of the time.

emoreau Basically Log Files are a common problem for IIS administrators as some sites can generate 100MB a day which in a week gets quite sizable so they either have to be delete or archived incase the logs are analised with something like webtrends 4 like we do. And we have some many sites now generating massive log files it's no longer that easy to archive the logs.

I think it would be a sellable package maybe if it could be developed in the right style if you interested mail me @  john@virtual.co.uk.
