How to check via LotusScript if the current user has access to a specified drive and path ?

Hi All,

I need to check with LotusScript if the current user has access to a specified path before contninuing the run of the script.
For example : by checking if he can access this directory "R:\OPS\ABC\Teams\Dev\IDN" and subdirectories.
How can I do that ?
Thanx for any help.

You could use Dir to check if the dir is available/accessible to the user.
If the user is supposed to read a file, consequently try that. If he/she needs to write a file, give that a try. If you're unfamiliar with that, check designer help on "Open".
Do all that in a separate function with built-in error trapping (on error goto..). Return e.g. true if all went well, or false when not.

Yes, Run-time errors give plenty of information about failed file operations, for example:

File not found
Bad file mode
File already open
Device I/O error
File already exists
Bad record length
Disk full
Bad file name
Device unavailable
Permission denied
Disk not ready
Cannot rename with different drive
Path/file access error
Path not found
File not writable
File not readable
Illegal file number
File not open
Unable to open file
Illegal operation for file mode

... and others.

You can also set different error handling routes, depending on error code, to take specific actions.


Function DoSomethingWithFile()
 ' Error trapping
 On Error Goto catch
 
   ' ---
   ' File-handling code
   ' ---
 
  Exit Function ' To avoid error message during normal execution
catch:
  Print "Error in Function ""DoSomethingWithFile"": "  & Str(Err) & " " & Error$ & " on row " & Cstr(Erl)
  Exit Function
End Function
