File not found, Not...

I am having a problem with a site at my ISP.

I issue this command:
oFSO.MoveFile "c:\sites\Single44\bob\database\" & Right(File.Path,Len(File.Path) - InStrRev(File.Path,"\")),"c:\sites\Single44\bob\webroot\waiting\" & Composition_ID & ".ae"
and the file moves just fine.

I FTP into the site and sure enough, the file is there.

I issue this command:
Set FileSize = oFSO.GetFile("c:\sites\Single44\bob\webroot\waiting\" & comp_id & ".ae")
and I get this error:
The above line results in: Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A0035)
File not found
/aeprojectdetail.asp, line 112

I issue this command:
Response.Write("c:\sites\Single44\bob\webroot\waiting\" & comp_id & ".ae")
I get:
c:\sites\Single44\bob\webroot\waiting\221.ae

The file is there!

Any idea why I am getting the error?

lets try another fso function:

response.write oFSO.FileExists("c:\sites\Single44\bob\webroot\waiting\" & comp_id & ".ae")


does that show the file being there?

Are you sure composition_id = comp_id?

The response is "False".

clockwatcher: composition_id is equal to comp_id.

try to see if  composition_id or comp_id are not empty, to do so write:

response.write "c:\sites\Single44\bob\webroot\waiting\" & comp_id & ".ae"

see what is the result

oh I am sorry I didn't see that you wrote this before.. so I suggest to do as clockwatcher said using FileExists function to see if the system can find the file or not...
so just do
response.write oFSO.FileExists("c:\sites\Single44\bob\webroot\waiting\" & comp_id & ".ae")

if result was false then try to navigate manually to see if the file is there

lets do another check for that directory that you are trying to get into.

response.write oFSO.FolderExists("c:\sites\Single44\bob\webroot\waiting\")



then, lets try to enumerate the files that the fso can see in that directory.

oFSO.getfolder("c:\sites\Single44\bob\webroot\waiting\")
for each ofile in ofso.files
  response.write ofile.name
next


let me know what you get for these.

Here is the result:

Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A01B6)
Object doesn't support this property or method: 'files'
/admin/aeprojectdetail.asp, line 116


Line 116 = for each ofile in ofso.files

I am an idiot.  There was a link that had an absolute path in it and it pointed to localhost.

I didn't catch it.

Sorry, and thanks for your help.
