I am trying to create what I think is a simple macro

I want it to compare the information I have in a text file to the information from an application.

 

Basically

If ‘A’ does not ‘A’

Log the information into a txt file (basically an error report) and then move onto the next value in the text file.

 

I am completely lost with the if then statements.

 

This is just a portion of the macro I am using!!!

 

Let me know if you need more information, of course this blog thing is new to me also.

 

Please help!

 

Thanks

Leslie

I would try something like this:

ASCII File Begin Process: "TestFile" (Comma Delimited Text )
 If Variable %T1% = "A"
   Variable Set String %T99% "%T2% %T3% %T4%"
   Clipboard Append Text: "LogFile,txt"
 End If
 If Variable %T1% <> "A"
   Variable Set String %T99% "%T2% %T3% %T4%"
   Clipboard Append Text: "ErrorLog,txt"
 End If
ASCII File End Process

 

I have also attached a copy of the macro for you to look at.

 

Also, I have set the macro to bypass file existence checking for these files as they are just examples. I would recommend using this unchecking this option when using these commands in your macro.

Jason,

I really appreciate your response. I have one more issue though 

 

Now my issue is the ‘A’, which is variable from a screen from a system.

How do I capture the variable and then compare it to the %T1% and use the If / Then Statement?

 

I have a Get Control %C1% and want to compare that to the %T1% use the If / Then Statement.

 

ASCII File Begin Process: "TestFile" (Comma Delimited Text )

If Variable %T1% = "A"

Variable Set String %T99% "%T2% %T3% %T4%"

Clipboard Append Text: "LogFile,txt"

End If

If Variable %T1% <> "A"

Variable Set String %T99% "%T2% %T3% %T4%"

Clipboard Append Text: "ErrorLog,txt"

End If

ASCII File End Process

 

Thank you so much.

Leslie
