Hi,

How can I send a file to a 'folderA' if its file name is 'file1', otherwise I send it to 'folderB' if its name is 'file2' ?

Thanks for your help

i have a FileSystemWatcher that watches a folder. If a file arrives at this specific folder i want the FileSystemWatcher to react by sending the arrived file to 'FolderA' if the file name is 'file1', or send the file to 'FolderB' if file name is 'file2', otherwise the file is deleted.

You could do something like this:

Imports System.IO

Dim fileName As String = "c:\file1.txt"
'Dim fileName As String = "c:\file2.txt"

If fileName = "c:\file1.txt" Then
  File.Move(fileName, "c:\folderA\file1.txt")
Else
  File.Move(fileName, "c:\folderB\file1.txt")
End If

You can comment the first fileName and uncomment the second fileName if you want to test it. These files and folders need to exist or the program will throw an exception.

Something simple like this might help:

   Public Sub TransferFile(ByVal strFileName As String)

      Const FolderA As String = "Folder A"
      Const FolderB As String = "Folder B"

      If strFileName = "file1" Then
         System.IO.File.Copy(strFileName, FolderA)
      ElseIf strFileName = "file2" Then
         System.IO.File.Copy(strFileName, FolderB)
      Else
         System.IO.File.Delete(strFileName)
      End If

   End Sub
