Post Batch file to transfer, organize and rename files
Hello everybody,

My name is Antoine, I'm new on this forum. I'm trying to develop the following batch file :

My point : As a private pilot, I get every month a CD-ROM with updated information in PDF format (approach plates, rules, airport information, etc.), spread in various files and directories.

The way these data are organized and named on that CD doesn't totally fit my needs, thus I would like to automatically transfer chosen data from the CD-ROM to my HD (E:\) in dedicated directories and with a completed name.

For instance, airport visual approach plate files are identified on the CD-ROM with a long name containing amongst others the 4 letters of airport's ICAO name (eg LSZH). I would like the file's name to be automatically completed with the city name (eg ZURICH LSZH).
Airports list is finished and I would fill up a conversion table for the name completion, either inside the batch file, or ideally in a separate text file.
Depending on the PDF's file name, one can also find out what kind of information it contains and therefore in which directory to transfer it. For instance, visual approach charts PDFs name contain also the word "VAC", and I would transfer such files into a VAC folder on my HD.

Currently I'm doing this job manually, but it's typically something that could (and should) be automated.
I have very little experience with batch files, and didn't find out so far how to do it, especially check and modify long file names and how to create/work with a conversion table.


How would you proceed to create such a batch file ? Is there a way doing it, or should I turn towards another language ? Would anybody be nice enough to help me ?

Thanks a lot in advance.
Best regards

Antoine

The first thing to do is define the job properly and completely, so that a batch file writer doesn't need to recode and retest the batch file again, to add something.


So you would need to define the folders where a certain type of file is coming from, and where it is going too. Charts, logs, maps, whatever.
Showing us a sample of the filenames would help, from each folder that you need to process.

You mentioned that you want to rename files with a 4 character designation and that's easy, but you need a file that has all the 4 character designations on separate lines and followed by the city name.

Is that enough to continue with? See if you can compile a list of the changes.

Hi foxidrive,

Thank you for your reply.
Let's say on the CD-ROM, files are stored as follows (I don't have it with me, I transcript it by memory):
\120727\eVFR\Full\LS_ADINFO_0001_LSGS_VAC.PDF (where 120727 stands for update number, LS_ADINFO means it's an airport information, LSGS means Sion Airport and VAC = visual approach chart)

The file would be transferred to E:\AIP\VAC\
with the completed name LS_ADINFO_0001_SION_LSGS_VAC.PDF

I would define somewhere that LSGS is related to SION, LSGG to GENEVA, etc.

=> all the CD files containing ADINFO in their name would be tranferred to the folder E:\AIP\VAC\
The other files of the CD would be copied to other folders on my HD, but without name change => if I achieve the above transformation, I think the rest comes quite easy.

Does it help ?
Thanks

Antoine

Ok.

Don't follow this up elsewhere unless you get no help here. I don't like working on a task when unknown other people are also working on the same task *at other forums*.

I have a comment before providing code - the easiest task would be to copy the CDROM and then do the renames and moving files on your hard drive.

In this case, you might consider this to sort better in a directory list.
LS_ADINFO_0001_LSGS_SION_VAC.PDF
than this
LS_ADINFO_0001_SION_LSGS_VAC.PDF

but that choice is yours.

Are there going to be files in folders other than \120727\eVFR\Full that will be going into E:\AIP\VAC\ ?

Also, please post some real file names and the table to translate the 4 character variable, so we can test our code.

Ok, I provide you more accurate info this evening, when I'm home with the real stuff available.

I'm ok to copy the files then rename.
Regarding city names, I get a more comfortable sorting when the city name stands before ICAO code.

Thanks for your help, won't post elsewhere ;)

Hello again,

There, I tried describing accurately the batch file's task.
Do you think a batch file might be suited to do it?

The CD-ROM contains several folders, but all interesting data are stored in the one named eVFRM\

The folder eVFRM contains one folder named after update number (for instance "120726" for the current update => changing at every release, and an XML file called eVFRM_list.xml :

<?xml version="1.0"?>
-<eVfrmList> <CDRom amdt="008/12" wefDate="26 JUL 2012" number="006/2012"/> <eAip select="Published as of 26 JUL 2012" wef="120726"/> </eVfrmList>

As the case may be, the xml file can be used to find out update number if using a wildcard isn't suited.

The folder 120726 contains 10 folders and an HTML index:

D:\eVFRM\120726>dir
Volume in drive D is LS_eVFRM_006_12
Volume Serial Number is 1A32-994F

The name structure of these charts is thus : LS_ADINFO_0000_LSZZ_*.pdf, where LSZZ is the aerodrome ICAO code.
The 0000 sequence is useless to me and should be replaced by the city name for better sorting.

All the files starting with LS_ADINFO shall be transferred to E:\AIP\VAC on my HD and the name completed.
The file named LS_AGA*.pdf shall be copied to E:\AIP\AGA

Post Re: Batch file to transfer, organize and rename files
I think this could do the job but it is untested. Copy your E:\AIP folder somewhere else for a backup and try this.
Note that it expects the folders on E: to already exist.

You will have to create this file first "e:\AIP\translate_list.txt" and inside it create a list of aerodrome ICAO codes and the city name, in this format

LFSB Singapore
LSER Melbourne
LSEZ Toronto


Then when you run the batch file you will only get filenames echoed to the screen - this is to check if I got the items correct so you can see if the city names are in the right place and if the filenames look right.

Each two lines will be followed by a 'press any key to continue' message and eventually an 'aborting' message when it will end.

If the names look right after you have created the translation file then change

"echo copy /b /y" to "copy /b /y " in two places

and remove these three lines

echo aborting
pause
goto :EOF



Let me know if the filenames are wrong and paste an example of the errors.



Code:
@echo off
set cdrom="d:"

for /f "delims=" %%a in ('dir "%cdrom%\eVFRM\" /ad /b') do set "update=%%a"

echo Update release is "%update%"

for %%a in ("%cdrom%\eVFRM\%update%\chart\LS_ADINFO_*") do (
for /f "tokens=1-4,* delims=_" %%b in ("%%a") do (
for /f "tokens=2" %%z in ('find /i "%%e" ^< "e:\AIP\translate_list.txt"') do (
echo copying "E:\AIP\VAC\%%b_%%c_%%z_%%e_%%f"
echo copy /b /y "%%a" "E:\AIP\VAC\%%b_%%c_%%z_%%e_%%f"
pause
)
)
)


for %%a in ("%cdrom%\eVFRM\%update%\full\LS_ADINFO_*") do (
for /f "tokens=1-5 delims=_." %%b in ("%%a") do (
for /f "tokens=2" %%z in ('find /i "%%e" ^< "e:\AIP\translate_list.txt"') do (
echo copying "E:\AIP\VAC\%%b_%%c_%%z_%%e.%%f"
echo copy /b /y "%%a" "E:\AIP\VAC\%%b_%%c_%%z_%%e.%%f"

Post Re: Batch file to transfer, organize and rename files
Hi foxidrive,

I'm pretty amazed, the batch files works pretty well indeed. There are only 2 small issues :

1) the %%b variable in copy /b /y "%%a" "E:\AIP\VAC\%%b_%%c_%%z_%%e_%%f"
contains "d:\eVFRM\120726\chart\LS" instead of "LS":

Update release is "120726"
copying "E:\AIP\VAC\d:\eVFRM\120726\chart\LS_ADINFO_BALE_MULHOUSE_LFSB_AREA.pdf"

copy /b /y "d:\eVFRM\120726\chart\LS_ADINFO_0000_LFSB_AREA.pdf" "E:\AIP\VAC\d:\e
VFRM\120726\chart\LS_ADINFO_BALE_MULHOUSE_LFSB_AREA.pdf"
Press any key to continue . . .

By changing the line to copy /b /y "%%a" "E:\AIP\VAC\%%c_%%z_%%e_%%f" it works, but I loose the "LS_" part of the name of the file (ADINFO*.pdf instead of LS_ADINFO*.pdf).

2) the second part...
for %%a in ("%cdrom%\eVFRM\%update%\full\LS_ADINFO_*") do (
for /f "tokens=1-5 delims=_." %%b in ("%%a") do (
for /f "tokens=2" %%z in ('find /i "%%e" ^< "e:\AIP\translate_list.txt"') do (
echo copying "E:\AIP\VAC\%%b_%%c_%%z_%%e.%%f"
echo copy /b /y "%%a" "E:\AIP\VAC\%%b_%%c_%%z_%%e.%%f"
pause

...works pretty fine for all the files but 2, having an extra suffix after ICAO code and before the extension :

LS_ADINFO_0000_LSGG_APPX.PDF
and
LS_ADINFO_0000_LSZH_APPHEL.PDF

become thus

ADINFO_GENEVE_LSGG.APPX
and
ADINFO_ZURICH_LSZH.APPHEL


I'm quite unfamiliar with the "token... delims" instruction you used, I will do some trial and error to figure out how exactly this instruction works and find a fix.

*********************
EDIT 1:
For that second point, I found the following workaround, works ok:
IF %%f == pdf (
echo copying "E:\AIP\VAC\%%c_%%z_%%e.%%f"
copy /b /y "%%a" "E:\AIP\VAC\%%c_%%z_%%e.%%f"
rem pause
) ELSE (
echo copying "E:\AIP\VAC\%%c_%%z_%%e_%%f.pdf"
copy /b /y "%%a" "E:\AIP\VAC\%%c_%%z_%%e_%%f.pdf"
rem pause
)
*********************

EDIT 2:
For the first point, I found a workaround by replacing %bb with LS_

Works flawless !
*********************

Thank you so much for your nice help, I really, really appreciate !

Best regards
Antoine

Post Re: Batch file to transfer, organize and rename files
I'm glad you were able to repair the issues Antoine.

For what it is worth, the edits below in colour should fix the %%b issue. Your solution to the other issue is great but add a /i in IF /i "%%f"=="pdf" (
so that any upper case files are copied too.

@echo off
set cdrom="d:"

for /f "delims=" %%a in ('dir "%cdrom%\eVFRM\" /ad /b') do set "update=%%a"

echo Update release is "%update%"

pushd "%cdrom%\eVFRM\%update%\chart\"
for %%a in ("LS_ADINFO_*") do (

for /f "tokens=1-4,* delims=_" %%b in ("%%a") do (
for /f "tokens=2" %%z in ('find /i "%%e" ^< "e:\AIP\translate_list.txt"') do (
echo copying "E:\AIP\VAC\%%b_%%c_%%z_%%e_%%f"
echo copy /b /y "%%a" "E:\AIP\VAC\%%b_%%c_%%z_%%e_%%f"
pause
)
)
)
popd

pushd "%cdrom%\eVFRM\%update%\full\"
for %%a in ("LS_ADINFO_*") do (
for /f "tokens=1-5 delims=_." %%b in ("%%a") do (
for /f "tokens=2" %%z in ('find /i "%%e" ^< "e:\AIP\translate_list.txt"') do (
echo copying "E:\AIP\VAC\%%b_%%c_%%z_%%e.%%f"
echo copy /b /y "%%a" "E:\AIP\VAC\%%b_%%c_%%z_%%e.%%f"
pause
)
)
)
popd

echo aborting
pause
goto :EOF

Thank you so much foxidrive, your fix works great - it's smarter than mine - and I learned a new dos function I wasn't aware of : pushd/popd.

In the meantime I also improved the overall routine with variable target drive and automated subfolders creation.
I was pretty confident a batch file would be the ideal kind of tool for such a task, but I definitely wouldn't have figured out by myself how to do it the way you did.
Therefore I cannot thank you enough for your great and efficient support.

Best regards
Antoine

It's nice to hear that you are enhancing the features around my framework. That's the best way to learn - add things, fix it when it breaks, and change bits.

All the best
