How To Rename Existing File With Date Stamp

May 28, 2012

I understand how to rename a file in as I use the coding at the end of my post. However, is its possible to rename a file and if the file exists then to rename it and add +1 to the file name? So if I ran the code.
'Run it first time
My.Computer.FileSystem.RenameFile("c: est est.txt", "c: estNewName.txt")
'Run it again but it should add +1 as the file will already exists so it should be "c: estNewName1.txt"
My.Computer.FileSystem.RenameFile("c: est est.txt", "c: estNewName.txt")

Decided rather than rename and +1 it would be better to just date stamp it.
My.Computer.FileSystem.RenameFile("c: est est.txt", "Test" & Format(Date.Now, "ddMMyy") & ".txt")

VS 2008 Obtain CRC32 Checksum Of Files Within A Folder Then Rename Files And Folder

Mar 4, 2010

in the current project im making i've decided to add in some tools, 1 of which is a renamer based of a renamer app that already exists (called scdtoolz), i want to build my own version of it so i can learn some new things, and build a nice GUI version of it.[code]So what i have managed to determine is that the current app scans the folders contents for the CRC32 Checksum, and renames based of that, since the 456.bin's CRC32 Checksum was 2274F80B, and in the text file 2274F80B is found here 'WWF - Rage in the Cage (T-81015)(U)#2274F80B#'So now i have determined game identification is based of the CRC32 checksums, how would i go about coding a similar ap in i need to make the app scan a folder, but how to return crcchecksum? and then rename if check = XXXX? If MD4 sums are easier/simpler i can use those instead, im lookin at a few hash app sources now, so i think i can see how to get the md5 but not the crc32 yet, or how to rename the 2 files and folder based of the text file.

Rename Then Move Files From One Directory To Another

Oct 15, 2009

I have a script task inside a for each file loop which moves files from one directory to another. It uses the file.move command which works fine unless the file I am moving already exists in the destination directory. I would like to add the datetime string to the filename before moving it or alternatively an incremental variable to make the filename unique before its moved.

VS 2008 - Rename Files While Working With Them

Sep 27, 2009

I am trying to change the file names of all the files in a directory based on content of the file. So I am opening the file, reading the content, storing the new file name in a variable and then trying to change the name of the file. This is not working because when I start this loop I am opening the file and viewing it so it won't allow me to change while the file is in use. Should I store the old and new file names in an array and do the renames after the For Next Loop is complete?

VS 2010 Rename Files On Server, Via FTP?

May 21, 2010

A while back I asked about going beyond basic FTP upload/download on this thread, and the response I got about using FtpWebRequest was very helpful. Now I'm looking at something that doesn't seem to be offered in FtpWebRequest: renaming a file on the server.

My situation: several times each month I update MyConfig.csv on my website. This file is generated on my computer by Excel to control who can access which files on the site, and it runs a bit over 1 MB. The scripts on the server parse through the file to keep things running smoothly. Given that the file can take some time to transfer, I typically will upload NewMyConfig.csv to the server with a commercial FTP program, then when it is in place I rename the existing file to MyConfigBackup20100521.csv and then rename NewMyConfig.csv to MyConfig.csv. This way, if there is a problem with the upload, everything keeps running smoothly because the existing MyConfig is undisturbed, and the window when a customer might get an error from the scripts because there is no MyConfig.csv is reduced to a couple of seconds between the two rename operations.

Now I'd like to automate all of this to happen with a VB program, but it looks like FtpWebRequest only allows you to rename directories, not individual files, on the server.

Make A Program To Rename All The Video Files In The Right Order?

Jun 1, 2011

Basically I download lots of TV shows and they're never named in the way I like; they're named like this "The Office.S06E22.HDTV.XviD-NoTV."So I was wondering if I had a .txt file with all the episode names I could make a program to rename all the video files in the right order so they're named like this "The Office Season 6 Episode 22 - Secretary's Day."So I want to copy and paste a list of correct episodes names into a text file. Then I want to read the text file, which I already know how to do. Then, and this is the bit I'm struggling with, I want to read the text file, one line at a time, and it renames the top video file with the top episode name and so on.

.net - VS 2008 Addin Copies And Renames Form Files, Gets Duplicate Members Errors Despite Rename

Jul 14, 2011

I have a VB.NET project in Visual Studio 2008 that I created a specialized addin for. The addin prompts the user to select a database table, takes a template form class's files, copies them to another directory within the project, and renames the form class within the copied files. It then opens the new form and adds controls to it based on the fields in the database table.

The copying of the template form causes the background compiler to give 'duplicate member' errors, such as "Private Sub InitializeComponents(...) has multiple definitions with identical signatures," even though I renamed the files of the new form and the class name within them. Sometimes these errors go away before the new form is opened, but when they stick around the new form doesn't open correctly, and it throws an error instead. I implemented some code to wait until there are zero errors in the error list before trying to open the new form. This has helped sometimes, but for some reason sometimes the errors don't go away at all until the addin is closed.

How to copy the template form and rename the copy without the background compiler ever noticing duplicate members. If that's not possible, then perhaps someone has an alternative?

Here is my code that copies and renames the template form:

Private Sub CreateDataForm(ByVal tableName As String, ByVal displayName As String) ', ByVal subDataForms As IList(Of Object))
Dim dataFormClassName As String = "frm" & MakeValidName(displayName)
Dim dataFormFileName As String = dataFormClassName & cVBSuffix

How To Read Existing VB 6 Random Access Files

Oct 30, 2010

I have 15 years' worth of files (approx. 10,000) that were created using VB6 structures and stored using the random access method. I am trying to write a conversion routine that will read the old structures and put them into a new format that is more compatible with the .net environment. I have not been able to successfully read any of the old files using the tools available in .net. Each file starts with a header record structure. The header record tells me how many tags are in the file. The next record (ie record number 2) is the first tag pointer record in the file. 

There are num_of_tags of the pointer records. Each pointer record has the string that holds the tag's 'literal name and two long integers that tell where in the file this tags records are. Those actual records are stored as History data structures, [Code]

Update Existing Folder With New Updated Files?

Jul 6, 2009

im having a problem with replacing some files in a folder, i have made a Auto Upater for a application im making (so beta testers can test it and also get updated stuff to test) now i can replace the Main application.exe with

If File.Exists(Application.StartupPath + "\test.exe") Then
File.Replace(Application.StartupPath + "\update\test.exe", Application.StartupPath + "\test.exe", Application.StartupPath + "\test.exe.old")
End If

This is after i have unziped the main folder it downloaded

but i also have a Data folder in the Main application folder and inside the new update\Data folder its has updated files now i cant list all files to replace like above as i want be replacing all files all the time, so im looking for something like you have on windows (would you like to replace files) without the prompt its just replaces them, so really im looking for a move and replace without prompting

i have tryed

Directory.Move(Application.StartupPath + "\update\Data", Application.StartupPath + "\Data")


Directory.Move(Application.StartupPath + "\update\Data\", Application.StartupPath + "\Data\")

but it errors saying the folder exists and i cant delete the folder as it will have files in that DONT need updating

VS 2008 - Open Existing Text Files And Create New Ones

Sep 4, 2010

I am currently writing a program in VB 2008. Here is what the program is intended to do: I need it to have two forms of input, so I want it to open existing text files and create new ones. Once the user has selected what input to be taken (either a file is opened or a new one is made, guessing multiple forms need to be used here) the user will then take the text file either created or opened and then be able to click a button which will sort all the text in the text file into alphabetical order and then display the results to the screen. While this happens, I need the words in the file to be counted by a counter (so a loop i guess) that then displays on which line each word appears on. I then need this information to be displayed in a text box on screen.
