Counting folders that have similar names in VB6
Posted on 2006-07-20
I am writing a program that selects and moves folders from one location to another using VB6.
Both source and destin locations are local (c: drive).
When I select the folders to be moved, I provide a pattern which is the first numeric part of each folder name.
Let's say I provide "123456", then any folder name that starts with this number is going to be moved.
I used MoveFolder method of filesystemobject to move folders.
This was working fine for me because it takes wild character (123456*) and moves all the folders whose names start with that number that I provide.
Now, I need to count the number of folders moved related with each number (123456 in this case).
Unfortunately MoveFolder method doesn't look like providing this number.
And I have about 1000 numbers that I have to process at a time.
What is the most efficient way to get the count of the folders that has the same first part pattern in their name?
Thanks for your help.
