VBS to be an "Alphabetic File Sorter"
Posted on 2006-06-24
I need a VBS to do the following - create new folders (subfolders) inside a main folder I specify, which name is based on the initial characters of files' name. First I must specify if it is only the first character, or the two, or three (and so on) inital characters of files' name. For example, inside the main folder there are 4 files : aaaa.ext, abbb.ext, accc.ext, addd.ext => I specify that the subfolders' name will be equal to the two inital characters of files' name => it automatically :
creates aa\ and moves aaaa.ext inside aa\;
creates ab\ and moves abbb.ext inside aa\;
creates ac\ and moves accc.ext inside ac\;
creates ad\ and moves addd.ext inside ad\;
Did you understand ?
Is something like an automatic batch.bat file - «md aa» => «move aa* aa\»; but makes everything automatically after I specify that I want to use the two inital characters of files' name.
I do not need a GUI, command-line is enough.
Can you help me.
A big thank you in advance
