Hi;

Following vbs snippet is not working which I want to round a file size:

 strWrite.WriteLine(oF.Name + "," + CStr(Round(oF.Size/1048576),2) + "," + CStr(oF.Files.Count) + "," + CStr(oF.Subfolders.Count))

Open in new window


whereas this is working which is not rounded:

 strWrite.WriteLine(oF.Name + "," + CStr(oF.Size/1048576) + "," + CStr(oF.Files.Count) + "," + CStr(oF.Subfolders.Count))

Open in new window


And I want to round the value. What to do?

Regards.

Try this:
 strWrite.WriteLine(oF.Name & "," & CStr(Round(oF.Size/1048576),2) & "," & CStr(oF.Files.Count) & "," & CStr(oF.Subfolders.Count))

Open in new window

I also like using & instead of + in VB languages. But in this case possibly more important is to make the 2 an argument of Round instead of CStr:
 strWrite.WriteLine(oF.Name & "," & CStr(Round(oF.Size/1048576,2)) & "," & CStr(oF.Files.Count) & "," & CStr(oF.Subfolders.Count))
