    Immediate folder name as filename in Limagito File Mover

    Q: I am trying to append a folder name to a file name but having a little trouble. The file is under 1 or 2 subfolder. After the file move I would like to append the very last folder name to the file name , and I don’t want to copy the source folder structure. Can you help me.

    Limagito File Mover Subfolder Filename

    A: Yes this is possible using some Pascal Script. We’ll need two destinations.

    • The first destination must be our ‘Pascal Script’. This script will strip the immediate subfolder from the complete subfolder part.
    • The second destination will be a Windows folder (WIN). In this destination we’ll rename the file using the info from the first destination (pascal script).

    Limagito File Mover Destination Setup

    Let’s start with the first destination (Pascal Script):

      iList: Integer;
      tmpEntry: String;
      tmpList: TStringList;
      psExitCode:= 1;
      // ... add your code here
      psVSA := Trim(psStringReplace(psFilePath, psSourcePath, ''));
      If psVSA <> '' Then
        tmpList := TStringList.Create;
          tmpList.Delimiter := '\';
          tmpList.DelimitedText := psVSA;
          psVSA := '';
          // Iterate
          For iList := (tmpList.Count - 1) DownTo 0 Do
            tmpEntry := Trim(tmpList.Strings[iList]);
            If tmpEntry <> '' Then
              psVSA := tmpEntry;
      // Adjust
      If psVSA <> '' Then
        psVSA := psVSA + '_';
      // Debug
      psLogWrite(1, '', 'Stripped SubFolder: ' + psVSA);

    Next we’ll setup our second destination (WIN):

    Don’t forget to disable the ‘Create SubDir’ option if you don’t want to copy the source folder structure.
