patgenn123 Posted January 31, 2010 Report Share Posted January 31, 2010 Hello everyone, I am very interested in buying ME Pro. From what I've seen, it looks awesome! However, I was wondering if anyone has an example of how the macro is able to check which file is deleted or added using Directory Modification. I would assume that the best way to approach it is to start with a huge text file using Repeat with Folder(using the full file path) to chew through all file names, use "Set Value from File" after the file is created, then when the change happens, fire the macro where the the second part of the macro would compare to the text file to see if the Variable "contains or does not contain". However, the activation triggers are confusing because if I want to have a macro check if a file was deleted, I would have to run the text file against another Repeat with Folder command. If a file was added, then I would have to run the second part of the macro against the text file using the text file process command. This is a lot of work and I am sure the macro would take some time to do both because the activation trigger is not broken down further. So how can i have a simple macro check if either one has happened in a simple elegant way? One that instantly catches the change and nails down the exact area of change? Thank you, Pat Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
