Moving Image Files

I am new to Macro Express. I am interested in creating a macro that will move image files (.jpg) from the current folder to a newly created folder. I would like to repeat the process until all files have been moved. I have been able to move all the files into a new folder, but I can't move a set number of them and then start the process over until all files have been moved. I have tried to create a counter to identify the files in the current folder, but that does not seem to work. I used the following counter that I found in the help file:

 

variable set integer %n1% to 0

repeat with folder

variable modify integer: %n1%=%n1% + 1

repeat end

text box display: files in folder

 

I can only get "files in folder message", but not the files in the current folder. I have not been able to get past this part. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

This will move all the files from one folder to another:

Repeat with Folder
 Move File or Files: "%T1%"
Repeat End

If you want to limit the number you move at one time, you might try this:

// Set N2 to the number of files you want to move at a time ... in this case 20
Variable Set Integer %N2% to 20
Variable Set Integer %N1% to 0
Repeat with Folder
 Move File or Files: "%T1%"
 Variable Modify Integer: %N1% = %N1% + 1
 If Variable %N1% >= variable %N2%
   Repeat Exit
 End If
Repeat End

You can simply repeat the macro to move another group of files.
