Copy only is the file does not exits

Hi Expert,

I've got this script (see beneath) that copies files to a directory but no I have to add a condition.

The file should only be copied if it does not exists in the target directory.
And all duplicate files should be filed in a array.

Thanks

You can probably use the If not FSO.FileExists method before the copy.  Im not sure what you mean by the statement "And all duplicate files should be filed in a array." though.

The simplest way to achieve this is using DOS. It would be in the following for:

@echo off
set source=c:\temp
set destination=d:temp

for /f "tokens=*" %%a in ('dir /a-d /b %source%\*.pdf') do (
   if not exist %destination%\%%~nxa (
      copy "%%a" "%destination%\"
   )
)
 

It's what DOS does best.

Hi TakedaT,

Yes I've tried to solve the problem by using FSO.FileExists but get an error on the line that usses it.

I get error:  Error 800A01A8 Object Required on line 37  

This is the line:

if not FSO.FileExists(strVerwerkt & file.name) then

Thanks,

Steynsk

FileExist not FileExists. Plus I think you'll need a "\"

if not FSO.FileExist(strVerwerkt & "\" & file.name) then

Nope. You're right it's FileExists.

if not FSO.FileExists(strVerwerkt & "\" & file.name) then

TakedaTCommented:
You have this in lines 36 and 37:

        for each fil in fldr.files
                if not FSO.FileExists(strVerwerkt & file.name) then

Looks like you need to either drop the  "e" in "file" in line 36 or add an "e" to the "fil.name" in all the other lines that reference it after.
And also as AmazingTech said, possibly a "/" in between the other line:
                if not FSO.FileExists(strVerwerkt & "\" & fil.name) then

However you choose, just make sure that they all match.
