File creation alert

Recommended Posts

I've successfully created a macro that opens a wordpad document when a .wav file is created in a specific directory, but it ties up macro express, until a wav file is created.


wait for file exist *.wav

program launch - alert.rtf


This macro runs at startup, but no other macros can run, because it's waiting for a wav file. The wav file creation in this directory may only happen once a month or it could be every few days, but I want to get an alert.


I auppose one solution would be to schedule it for every hour and for it to wait no more than 1 sec. Any other solutions?
