VBScript - Ignore any source files with today's date

I'm not a VBScript expert and I just cant seem to get the right variable.
Below is a script that Ignores any source files not modified yesterday.
I am trying to tweak this so that Ignores any source files modified today.
So if I run the script on April 4th, 2012 it will ignore any file modified with a date of April 4th, 2012.

Any help would be great.


Function Description(ScriptType)
  Description = "Ignores any source files not modified yesterday. Not used on Restore."
  ScriptType = 2
End Function

Sub RunBeforeFileCompare(Filename, ByRef Skip)
  ' Ignore if this is a Restore
  If SBRunning.Restore then
    Exit Sub
  End If

  YesterdayDate = Date - 1
  YesterdatStr = CStr(Year(YesterdayDate)) & CStr(Month(YesterdayDate)) & CStr(Day(YesterdayDate))
 
  FileDate = SBRunning.GetFileDateTime(Filename, TRUE)
  FileStr = CStr(Year(FileDate)) & CStr(Month(FileDate)) & CStr(Day(FileDate))

  If FileStr = YesterdatStr then
    Skip = FALSE
  Else
    Skip = TRUE
  End If
End Sub

Hi Cappper,

You can try this,


Function Description(ScriptType)
  Description = "Ignores any source files not modified today. Not used on Restore."
  ScriptType = 2
End Function

Sub RunBeforeFileCompare(Filename, ByRef Skip)
  ' Ignore if this is a Restore
  If SBRunning.Restore then
    Exit Sub
  End If

  ToDate = Date
  TodatStr = CStr(Year(ToDate)) & CStr(Month(ToDate)) & CStr(Day(ToToDate))
 
  FileDate = SBRunning.GetFileDateTime(Filename, TRUE)
  FileStr = CStr(Year(FileDate)) & CStr(Month(FileDate)) & CStr(Day(FileDate))

  If FileStr = TodatStr then
    Skip = FALSE
  Else
    Skip = TRUE
  End If
End Sub

Have a nice day.

No.  It did not work.  When the script is enabled only folders get copied to the destination.  No files get copied regardless of the date.  When I disable the script all files get copied.

Here's a slightly simpler approach that should work.
Sub RunBeforeFileCompare(Filename, ByRef Skip)
  ' Ignore if this is a Restore
  If SBRunning.Restore then
    Exit Sub
  End If

  ' Get current date
  TodayDate = Date
 
  ' Get Files date
  FileDate = SBRunning.GetFileDateTime(Filename, TRUE)

  ' Calculate number of days between the two
  DiffDays = DateDiff("d", FileDate, TodayDate)

  ' See if the file date is the same as todays date, skip if so
  If DiffDays = 0 Then
    Skip = FALSE
  Else
    Skip = TRUE
  End If
End Sub

Which could actually be shortened up quite a bit more to:
Sub RunBeforeFileCompare(Filename, ByRef Skip)
  ' Ignore if this is a Restore
  If SBRunning.Restore Then Exit Sub

  ' See if the file date is the same as todays date, skip if so
  If DateDiff("d", SBRunning.GetFileDateTime(Filename, TRUE), Date) = 0 Then
    Skip = FALSE
  Else
    Skip = TRUE
  End If
End Sub

Bill,
Almost perfect.  Your script only copied files with today's date instead of ignoring them.  As soon as I reversed the True and False statements it worked perfectly.

Thank you.

Ah yes, I see I was reading the original wording backwards.  Glad you sorted that out and it was useful, thanks.
