VB Script to run the script for files on the mapped network drive

I have a vb script that converts xlsx to csv. Runs fine on the c:\temp  (c drive)

Const xlCSV = 6
Const xlCSVMac = 22
Const xlCSVMSDOS = 24
Const xlCSVWindows = 23

Set files = WScript.Arguments
xlsx_in = files(0)
csv_out = files(1)
Set xl = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
xl.Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Set book = xl.Application.Workbooks.Open(xlsx_in)
book.SaveAs csv_out,xlCSV

Open in new window

cscript dump_xlsx_to_csv.vbe c:\temp\test.xlsx c:\temp\test.csv

Works fine and converts xlsx to csv

Now I want this to be accomplished as all the excel files will be on F drive ( network drive)

cscript dump_xlsx_to_csv.vbe f:\purple_top\purple_top.xlsx f:\purple_top\purple_top.csv

want to create a batch file that can run the script in f purple_top directory.

Help appreciated.

Here's a simple BAT file that will get the job done.  Save it as a BAT, adjust the folder name if needed and give it a try.

@echo off

pushd f:\purple_top

for %A in (*.xlsx) do cscript dump_xlsx_to_csv.vbe "%~A" "%~nA.csv"


Open in new window
