So I work for this small company and what they currently have is a bunch of files on server being move from one place to another. They are in pdf, wpd, doc and xls format. Initially what happens is that a user creates an entry into an excel file, then creates a folder on the server and then populate the folder with all the required files. After that a backup is created and an html version is created for the people in manufacturing.
I told my boss that we could have a script running on server, all the user has to do is to drop the files on the server and let the script take care of everything, but he is not a fan of scripts running on server.
Any ideas how this can be automated or anyone has done something that they might want to share.
