Extracting Zip File Using System.IO.Packaging?

Feb 13, 2012

This is the code I have right now

pZipFilename = "C:\123\1234.zip"

Using pkgMain As Package = Package.Open(pZipFilename, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read)

For Each pkgPart As PackagePart In pkgMain.GetParts()

The problem I'm having is that pkgMain.GetParts() never returns anything even though the .zip file has around 100 items in it.


Where Can Find System.IO.Packaging

Sep 3, 2010

I am trying to compress and uncompress files. I have read that System.IO.Packaging might suit my needs, but I can not find it. I am using VS 2008 professional. Imports System.IO.Packaging at the top of class does not work (it throws an error). I did find system.io.compression. Does this replace packaging? If it does, does it handle .7z and .rar files?

Use System.io.packaging To Create Own Zip Class?

Apr 28, 2010

I'm trying to use system.io.packaging to create my own zip class. I've got it to work, but i'm not happy with the compression rate. In the code below I've set it to the maximum compression rate, yet winrar is able to create a zip (at maximum compression) that is 2/3 of the size when I make it. Am i doing something wrong?

IDE :: Import System.IO.Packaging Into VB 2008 Program?

Jul 15, 2009

I am attempting to read Excel 2003 cell content through a Visual Basic 2008 program. Searching Help for the subject yielded an example Function named XLGetCellValue (ByVal fileName As String, ByVal sheetName As String, Byval addressName As String) As String

This function required the following Iports:

Imports System.Xml
Imports System.IO

upon pasting the above three Iports to the Program, Igot the following error message:Warning 1 Namespace or type specified in the Imports 'System.IO.Packaging' doesn't contain any public member or cannot be found. Make sure the namespace or the type is defined and contains at least one public member. Make sure the imported element name doesn't use any aliases.

Extracting Text From Htm File?

Aug 21, 2009

I am trying to extract text from an htm file (output.htm) to write into an SQL database.

I used "pdftotxt" to re-write the original pdf document into an htm file, in 'raw' format, and end up with lines like this:



What I am trying to do, using the above example, is to look for anywhere in the list where a date(e.g Mon24) is followed by lines containing KL ####, and to extract the date and the KL #### for writting to a database.

It seems like a huge task that is way beyond my limited capabilities, so I would be very grateful for some sample code in VBasic.

Extracting Text From Emf In A .pptx File?

Dec 22, 2009

I am trying to extract text from a .pptx file. I am able to extract from all other shapes except a shape that is identified as a msoPicture to right click on this shape in powerpoint and ungroup it, but when I try to do this from code it tell me that the ungroup method only applied to group shapes.I did some research and found out that the msopicture shape comes from a .emf file but I don't have the least idea how to ungroup this shape or get the text from it through code.NB: When I right click on the shape in powerpoint and select ungroup a message box pops up saying "This is an imported picture, not a group. Do you want to convert it to a Microsoft Office drawing object?". But I cannot seem to find a way in code to convert this shape to Ms Office drawing object.

Extracting Data From CSV File Into Searchable Structure?

Jun 25, 2010

I do not want to use SQL or any other database.

So far, this is working in returning all records:

' open the file "data.csv" which is a CSV file with headers"
Dim dirInfo As New DirectoryInfo(Server.MapPath("~/ftp/"))
Dim fileLocation As String = dirInfo.ToString & "data.txt"

File I/O And Registry :: File System Object Does Not Allow Spaces In File Names

Feb 3, 2010

I am working on a VB Console Application that takes an Autocad drawing type DWG and converts it to a PDF using a shell command that calls a third party application. In this case, acmecadconverter.exe from www.dwgtool.com. Then the PDF that is created needs a unique watermark, so I call a second application for that called pdftk.exe from www.accesspdf.com/pdftk/.

Everything works as intended, except when I try file names that contain spaces. The file system object does not tolerate spaces in the drawing file name. For instance, the following command gives me a system.io.filenotfoundexception...

My.Computer.FileSystem.RenameFile("Test Flowchart1.dwg", "Test~Flowchart1.dwg")

It's the same problem for all of my File System commands. Either file not found or invalid arguments.

The complete script I'm using is here:

Sub Main()
Dim arrArgs() As String = Command.Split(","), _
i As Integer, folderPath As String, myPart As String, _
