We are currently converting schedulers. Currently I am able to do file transfers using Wildcards, and then in a post process, I can get what was moved and read it to get the filename for the file that was moved with the wildcard. We are not able to do this anymore with the new scheduler of getting the name from the post process.
The folder should have only 1 file after the transfer with that name, so for example the folder "C:\Files\" could have:
Rainbow.csv Document 1079475.pdf Shapes_20180411.txt
If I am wanting to get the filename "Document 1079475.pdf" from the list and put that into a variable how would you do it with batch scripting in Windows knowing just "Document*.pdf"?
I have tried the commands below:
dir "%homedrive%\Files\Document*.pdf" > temp.txt set /p VAR=<temp.txt echo %VAR%
However, running the first line returns to the file:
Volume in drive C is OSDisk Volume Serial Number is D841-0924 Directory of C:\Files 08/01/2016 10:05 PM 128,657 Document 1079475.pdf 1 File(s) 128,657 bytes 0 Dir(s) 63,461,928,960 bytes free
So the variable VAR returns
Volume in drive C is OSDisk
