Testing if a file exists

Recommended Posts


Is it possible to test if a file exists? I've got a client who wants to have an image library. Some images are JPGs, others TIF, etc. What I would like is a calculation like this:


FileExists(itemName & "JPG); $$image_path & itemName & *.JPG);

FileExists(itemName & "TIF); $$image_path & itemName & *.TIF)


Hope that makes sense,

I am not sure what you plan to do with the result, but a file reference can contain several alternative paths separated by carriage returns. So something like

filepath & filename & ".jpg" & ¶ & filepath & filename & ".tif"

should work for most uses.
