We have installed the Notes Server on a UNIX machine.

I want to kill a file from my Agent periodically, but he can't find the path of the file?

CODE LotusScript :

Const path$ = "/lotus/notesr4/data1/sapfile.csv"
     
If Dir$( path$ ,0 ) = "" Then
   Msgbox( "No file on : '" + path$ + "'" )
Else
   Kill path$
End If


Thank you for the help.

Your current path should be "/lotus/notesr4/data1" and you are using a relative path convention and specifying whole path.

use path$ = "sapfile.csv" this will find the file

if you are not sure what your default data dir is use curdir function to check

Another thing to remember: Unix has case-sensitive filenames!

Maybe this little code sniffet helps???

direc = session.GetEnvironmentString( "Directory" , True) ' get the Notes Data Directory from notes.ini    
     fileName$ = "sapfile.csv"     ' this will be the file system name for the file
     fullpath$ = direc + "\" + fileName$
        Kill fullpath$

I use this on my Linux Server and it works like a charm...
