    Change time date stamp to the time and date that files are moved

    Q: Is it possible, while moving a file, to also change the time date stamp to the time and date that the files are moved? I’m trying to set up a rule to remove certain files from a folder and just want to change the time and date of the file to the time that the file was moved by this rule.

    A: Yes this is possible. Please open your Destination setup and select ‘File & Directory’ Tab.

    Please enable our ‘Reset File DateTime to Current DateTime’ option.

    Need support about moving files to sub folder ARCHIVE

    Q: Need support about moving files to sub folder ARCHIVE

    I would like to realize a move action with Limagito:

    > Source folder : D:\MECA + Subdir
    –Subdir contains \Customer_ONE, \Customer_TWO, etc.

    info : files to move are stored in each subfolder
    example:
    D:\MECA\Customer_ONE\po_20210720.csv
    D:\MECA\Customer_TWO\po_20210720.csv
    etc.

    > Function : Move

    > Destination folder :
    D:\MECA\Customer_ONE\Archive
    D:\MECA\Customer_TWO\Archive
    etc.

    You can see that Limagito will scan D:\MECA and its subfolders, and have to move files to archive subfolder.
    So objective is too collect the “Customer_ONE”, “Customer_TWO” value when Limagito scans…

    How can I set setting or make Pascal Script to be able to do this rule, and avoid create one rule per folder ?
    Let me know if my request is clear enough. Thanks in advance for your help.

    A: Could you please try the following. Some screenshots to get you started.

    • Source D:\MECA in our example is C:\Test\In_Meca\

    Moving a file based on specific filename part to specific folder

    Q: Moving a file based on specific filename part to specific folder

    Hi there, looking if your software can do this please.

    1) Look at a filename, parse out from character 8-16 and capture it as a ID number

    2) look at the subfolders, find folder with same name, if doesn’t exist, create.

    3) move the file to that location.

    Here is some more specific example

    PDF Name: 055400E900105028-DEN-20210412_12.pdf

    Folder name to search for, and if not exists, create and move the data.

    900104028

    The bolded number is the ID number we need to catch/reference.

    I think it could just skip the file in this ‘rule’ if the length of the file is not ok which would mean it doesn’t contain an ID number.

    For this 1 rule/purpose these files come from a third party provider which should be pretty consistent and contain that number.

    The problem is some folders contain only the ID and is missing the buffer 0’s we put in front.

    So pdf may say 000000465 but the folder that already exists may be called 465 ☹

    Hopefully your tool can assist in more than one way (which it looks like it can!)

    A: Yes this should be possible. We prepared some screenshots to get you started.

    1.You can use any Source but in this example we used a WIN folder:

    Limagito File Mover WIN as Source

    2. File Filter Setup

    The minimum file length we need is 20 (this includes the file extension). We are using the RegEx Include File Filter:

    ^[^|/\<>:?”*]{20,}$

    Limagito File Mover minimum length filter

    3.Now we need some Pascal Script to achieve the customer request:

    Be sure to set the ctOutputPath Constant to the Destination path you are using. In our example the Destination path will be ‘C:\Test\Out_Pdf\’.

    When the File ID starts with 0 then we’ll check if the ID as subfolder exists without the zeros. If it exists we’ll use that one but when not, then the complete ID will be used to create a new destination subfolder.

    Limagito File Mover Pascal Script option

    Var
      tmpDummyPath: String;
      tmpSubPath: String;
    Const
      ctOutputPath = 'C:\Test\Out_Pdf\';
    Begin
      psExitCode := 0;
      tmpSubPath := Copy(psFilename, 8, 9);
      psLogWrite(1, '', 'Stripped ' + tmpSubPath + ' from ' + psFilename);
      //
      IF Copy(tmpSubPath, 1, 1) = '0' Then
      Begin
        If Not DirectoryExists(ctOutputPath + tmpSubPath) Then
        Begin
          tmpDummyPath := tmpSubPath;
          Repeat
            tmpDummyPath := Copy(tmpDummyPath, 2, length(tmpDummyPath) - 1);
            If DirectoryExists(ctOutputPath + tmpDummyPath) Then
            Begin
              tmpSubPath := tmpDummyPath;
              Break;
            End;                  
          Until Copy(tmpDummyPath, 1, 1) <> '0';     
        End;  
      End;
      // The End
      psVSA := tmpSubPath;
      // Check
      If psVSA <> '' Then
        psExitCode := 1;
    End.

    Limagito File Mover On Destination Pascal Script

    4. WIN as Destination setup. Important because for this request we need a WIN as Destination.

    Limagito File Mover WIN as Destination

    Important, be sure the ctOutputPath Constant in the previous Pascal Script is the same as this path.

    Limagito File Mover WIN as Destination Path

    Please enable and set the Create SubDir option to:  %VSA

    Limagito File Mover WIN as Destination SubPath

    5. Result

    Source Files:

    The file RegEx filter will ignore a file when its length < 20. In this case file ‘055400E9001050.pdf’ will not be used.

    Limagito File Mover Source Files

    Destination Subfolders:

    • Subfolder 105208 was already available and was used because of the ‘zero’ prefix in the ID number.
    • Subfolder 900105028 was created by our File Mover.

    RunTime Log:

    File ‘055400E000105028-DEN-20210412_12 – Copy.pdf’ was copied to ‘C:\Test\Out_Pdf\105028\’ because this already existed. The Pascal Script removed the zeros from the ID number and checked if it already was available.

    File ‘055400E900105028-DEN-20210412_12.pdf’ was copied to ‘C:\Test\Out_Pdf\900105028\’. The ID number has no ‘zero’ prefix so the complete ID number was used to create the subfolder.

    As you see many options are possible with Limagito File Mover so don’t hesitate to ask.
