Send Event Question

Recommended Posts

I have created a series of Send Events that moves some files, zips the files, and deletes the files. There could be as little as 2 files and as many as 80, so the time to pause the script in between send events will be variable. Instead of having to overestimate the time required to process the aforementioned steps, is there a way to pause the script indefinitely until the command line returns a result, or closes?

Thanks,

-Steve

The easiest way of doing this is to use VBscript instead of command lines. VBscript can use FM's activeX implementation so it can call a script when it's done.

Check the "Windows automation" forum for more info on this.

Take a look here for a method relating to a looping error trapping import of a text doc that is output by your VBS http://www.filemakerdesign.com/blog/?bid=10.
