Re: Automatically merge pdf based on file existence

It looks better if you use "EQU 3" instead of "GTR 0", just like abc said.

And, yes, you'll have to change the code if the names are not "report x.pdf", where x can be 1, 2, or 3.

Re: Automatically merge pdf based on file existence

To see if they are there, you just have to use IF EXIST statements. @echo off pushd "%pdfpath%" ::%pdfpath% should be the path containing your PDFs set pdf=0 for %%n in (1 2 3) do if exist "report %%n.pdf" set /a pdf+=1 if %pdf% GTR 0 (echo There are %pdf% Report files in the fol...

Re: Automatically merge pdf based on file existence

I don't know if copy can do the trick, but try it.

Code: Select all

copy /b report*.pdf "Main Report.pdf"

Edit:
Nope, won't work.

Re: How to call the oldest batch file from another batch fil

Alternatively, you can use CALL or START [/WAIT]. These make your code more readable. ;)

Re: How to call the oldest batch file from another batch fil

Maybe this piece of code will help you.

Code: Select all

pushd "C/app/outbound"
for /f "delims=" %%a in ('dir /b /o-d *.bat') do set "oldBat=%%~fa"
popd
echo oldBat == %oldBat%
pause

(untested)
Insert these lines in your caller.bat and tell us if it does what you want it to.

Bulleyeaccuracy, no. The brackets enclose the command(s) after the IF condition and before the ELSE. e.g. if %minecraftsaver%==all (goto minecraftall) else goto minecraftbackup1 Also, I answered what will probably solve your problem on my first post. Try this if /i "%minecraftsaver%" == &q...

Re: Wait for Few Seconds before Executing a Command

Well, you can do it with choice. But choice is not available on XP (unless you download it). With choice.exe, you can set a default answer and a timeout; if the timer reaches 0, this default option will be chosen. Download choice.exe from somewhere, put it in \windows\system32 (i put it there) and t...

Re: create an empty .txt file if the file doesnt exist

PRO The fsutil doesn't overwrite an existing file. I believe your "type" and "rem" lines will also not overwrite if you append instead of write, yet would still create a 0-byte file if it doesn't exist already. >>"test 1.txt" type nul >>"test 3.txt" rem. Livi...
