Find And Copy Text In Text File, Intermediate
I have a text file in which I am searching for each instance of the text "begin*end", where * can be a string of any length. I want to extract each of these sequences out of the file. So I need a way to find all of them (doesn't InStr just find the first one?). And the only complication is that "begin" is not always the start of a string I need ... only when there is an "end" before another "begin". Any ideas? Thanks.

Grrr... Accentued File Name In Batch File...
I got a problem already submitted in other thread, but I've tried different solutions with no success...

Explanation : i launch a bat file from VB to launch a 'command line driven' third party application, i wait for successful execution and i proceed further..
It all runs smooth, but when a file name is like this one : c:my filesle sénégal.mpg, the application is not launched... it gives 'file not found'...

If a open (with Type) the batch file in a command window, the é are replaced by a ù or something... Well known problem but unable to figure out a solution...
Have tried to replace the é with ?, but my command line application asks to have filename between doublequotes, it gives :
apllication.exe /s "c:my filesle s?n?gal.mpg" "c:my filesle senegal.mku"

this doesn't work of course, because the ? is not interpreted...
Have tried strconv with no success, have tried with notepad and 'save as' in unicode, it works, but i don't want to script notepad for this (if possible), have heard about 'file scripting object', don't understand how to use it...

Any help will be really appreciated
TIA and have a nice day

Rename File Using A Batch File
I've got an auto update feature that downloads the latest exe of my app which is working fine. However I need to somehow ever write the current exe with the new one.

I've created a batch file that is run after the new exe has been downloaded (code below) but the problem i've got is the REN won't happen as the file names have spaces in them. How can I overcome this or is there anyother way to delete the current exe and rename the downloaded one ro Trades R Us?


Code:
Open App.Path & "update.bat" For Output As #1
Print #1, "@echo off"
Print #1, ":start"
Print #1, "cls"
Print #1, "del Trades R Us.exe"
Print #1, "ren New Trades R Us.exe Trades R Us.exe"
Print #1, "del update.bat"
Close #1

Batch File To .COM File Conversion ...
Hello to all forum members ;

In one of my programs , I'm using batch files. But batch files can be edited very easily. Hence I was looking to convert it to .com files (the executable version). I searched a lot on Net ; but couldn't gather much information on this issue.

Have anybody done this before ? Please help me to get this done.

I also downloaded the File Format Spec from wotsit.org and I couldn't grasp much. The only thing I could grasp is the first offset = 100h. Does that mean that Open File For Input As Binary and then Put command to put the data at 100h data offset onwards will make the .com file ?

I tried it ; but that didn't produce a correct .com file. Please help me in this issue.

Thanks & Regards.

Copy Text From Text File

Recurse Subfolders To Open 1 Xl File & Copy 1 Wksht To Master Summmary File
Hi all.

I need a bit of help in writing code to recurse sub-folders, open the only XL file in there & copy the master sheet of that file (which has the same name as the sub-folder) to a master summary file.

Here is the over all scenario.

I am the financial manager for a small company and I down load our bank accounts, visa accounts & payments made by direct credit (DC’s) thru Internet Banking as CSV files. This is no problem as I have macros that import & format the data as required to the requirements of the account type.

The DC’s are slightly different as I may have up 10 CSV files per month, one per transaction which may have up to 30 creditors per transaction. I use a macro to import the CSV file/sheet into a summary XL file for the month.

Here is my challenge – I now want to summarise these monthly summaries into one annual summary for collation & reporting purposes.

To do this I need to the following - But I am not sure if this “pseudo-code” is possible or I am on the right track.


1.    Open the Master annual summary (MAS) file
2.    ascertain & record in an array the all the subfolders
3.    Loop thru the subfolders & open the required work book
4.    Copy the summary sheet (the copied CSV sheets are still in the summary file) of the workbook
5.    Close the monthly summary workbook
6.    Paste the sheet into MAS
7.    After looping thru & save the MAS.

But I am not sure if this “pseudo-code” is possible or I am on the right track.

I have code that recurses & lists files, copies files, backup files, rename files, but not actually open files in the sub-folders & do things by looping thru.

I think I read some where that an array cannot actually open files in subfolders but you loop thru the sub-folders, use the array to go to the individual sub-folders and open the file to do stuff.

Added info - the structure I have is like this

Folder structure - DCPayments8 (where 08 is August & all the folders are named as mm & the summary file is “DC0708.xls”
Cheers

Copy File From Resource File To Hard Drive As VbHidden
Is it possible to copy a file from the resource to the hard drive as vbHidden ?

I've made a Graphical User Interface for several commandline tools.
I want to include the commandline tools in a resource file and then
when the user starts the GUI, the commandline tools get extracted
to the hard drive as vbHidden.

Most people don't have "Show hidden files and folders" enabled.
This way it looks like there is only one app, instead of a GUI with
all kinds of extra apps, because that looks ugly (in my opinion).

This is the code I'm using now for one commandline tool.


VB Code:
Private Sub Form_Load()    Dim sBuffer As String    sBuffer = StrConv(LoadResData(101, "CUSTOM"), vbUnicode)    Open App.Path & "WhoLockMe.exe" For Output As #1    Print #1, sBuffer    Close #1End Sub
