Help! Need a script to automatically open files with the same name but in another location.

Good morning friends,

So for my work, I need a script to open files with the same name but located in a different folder. But since I'm a total noob when it comes to programming, I can't understand how do. That's what I have in mind:

-J' I manually open an image.

-The script will look for a file with the same name in another folder that I've specified.

-The script will then select the channel CMYK of the second file and copy and paste it into the first file.

-The second file is then closed without saving the changes.

I have problems with the part where the script searches for a file with the same name as the opened file. I would really appreciate help. Thanks in advance.

var path = / * path of folder to insert as a string here * / + ' / ' + base name + / * insert file extension, including the period as a string here * /;

If (queue (path) .exists == true) {var otherDocument = app.open (File (path))};

  • Copy color labels between files with the same name but a different extension.

    For historical reasons, I have several occurences where there are RAW files in a folder, and then a subfolder with a selection of the RAW files converted to jpg files.

    I'm looking for a way to yellow label RAW files with a jpg in the subfolder. They have the same name except for the extension.

    Do manually is compact, it is more than a thousand pictures, so a way to add a script or copy it would be great!

  • Server data store will automatically get updated when the new file (with the same name) is placed in the landing area


    Hi guys,.

    The data store server-side will get automatically updated when a new file with the same name is loaded in the landing area?

    for example

    1 data store created for server-side get the file named UK.xls (he has 5 rows)

    2 snapshot created for the above data store

    3. created with the snapshot process

    After that if I remove 2 lines from the same file and load again to the landing (with the same name). So by re-running the process will take the last file OR do I need to reload the file in the data store every time when there is a change in the file. We also tried with option to work but the last file was not picking up.

    Any help will be really appreciated.

    Please lets us know your updates.

    Please advice

    Thank you

    VT

    Hello

    When you create a snapshot, you create a snapshot whose task (provided that you use a data store server-side) can be run from a job. To refresh the data, run the snapshot in a job task. If you create a task at the time the snapshot and the processes that use it, they will automatically connect and will be 'upstream' data through the snapshot in the process. You can then choose whether it would be appropriate to write the snapshot or not (for the effectiveness of performance if you want to do the straight through processing) by activating or deactivating the bucket of data staged that the snapshot written to. The snapshot in the work task means that the data is refreshed.

    For the work of design to the Director, you can refresh the snapshot by running again it manually in the context menu.

    Kind regards

  • DISABLE "there is already a file with the same name to this place.

    Window 7. 64 bit. How do you turn OFF DISABLE, CANCEL, DELETE, STOP the pop-up 'MOVE the FILE'?

    As a user since the days of DOS command lines and having had a routine all the way through to XP, this new window is one of the most annoying pop ups for an experienced user. If it isn't a swith toggle check box or an other power selection for this message, there must be. And if there is, you did it quite hard to find.

    The dialog box that appears in Windows 7 that starts with "there is already a file with the same name to this place. It lists then the three choices - "Copy and replace", "Do not copy" and "copy, but keep both files.

    I managed several libraries of forms which oblige me to replace the files throughout my day. I make a copy of the file I replace first of all, for archival purposes and this pop-up box is, well, it's boring. There must be a way to disable.

    This box comes up to move files and to copy the files.

    Any help in these turn off would be appreciated.

  • Return of the mistake of MUSE: why do we not have several files with the same name?

    Well - I thought I had all this worked and fixed, but I met the download error 'Why do we have several files with the same name' once again.  (I downloaded all the files several times today in order to 1) works the way it worked the last time and 2) get an OAM file that is not loading for some reason any load again and the download takes about an hour to transfer all the files manually.

    To recap:

    (1) an option "Upload only modified files" returns the 'Muse has encountered an error and closes.  Why do we have several files with the same name? "error just as before.

    (2) a full download will work but takes forever and is NOT a substitution for work changed files option.

    Please advise with possible solutions!

    -Dave

    Is it possible to have two .oam different files in different folders on your computer where the .oam files have the same name? I'm theorizing that there may be a bug in the treatment to ensure the folder created for a .oam placed on the server receives a unique name, particularly in the case of a partial update of the site on the server.

    Please send us the .muse file and all the files in .oam related to [email protected] along with a link to this topic for the context so we can attempt to reproduce this error and isolate the root cause. If files are larger than 20 MB, you'll need to use a service such as Adobe send & Track, Dropbox, creative cloud, WeTransfer, etc. file sharing. Thank you.

  • How to register multiple files with the same name with different num revision

    Hello

    Can someone please tell me, how to register several different files with the same name with the revision number using the RIDC API.

    For example:
    First of all I will be saved in a file (TestFile.txt) in a content server with revision number 1 using the RIDC API in application of the ADF. Then after awhile, will change the same line (TestFile.txt) check-in and once again. I tried to check the same file several times, however first Check-in correctly in server showing revision 1, so that Check-in same file again, her gives no error message, and also its not reflecting only not to the server. Single file (TestFile.txt) reflecting on the server.

    How to implement this feature using the RIDC API? Any suggestions would be helpful.

  • Several files with the same name.

    Cannot publish to Business Catalyst because of a fatal error, where it is said "why do we have several files with the same name?  The website and all its contents have not changed in more than a year with the exception of minor changes to the wording so unable to understand what the error is encountered. Are there not better misdiagnosed at one point less for the files in question.

    The problem is the result of a mixture of case-sensitive and case-insensitive between how files within the .oam are put into interaction with and what is written in the muse_manifest.xml file during a re - download full compared to an incremental download.

    If all .oam packages files are tiny and the original .oam were replaced in Muse with the all new tiny .oams, then you should select Upload: publish all the files in the dialog box Options. From there, forward publication of incremental changes should work without errors.

  • Replace the files with the same name - crush

    Everytime I go to save a file (in the office) for example, if this file has the same name with another in the save destination I'm asked if I want to replace it with one that I am saving at this time.

    I push the button no and I choose a different name for the file.

    What I want is this:

    If the file has the same name I want to be saved anyway, and in his name a number is added which means that it is another file.

    ex, jane, and jane (1)

    I want the 1 are added automatically. I noticed these when I save a file after scanning a document using the windows fax and scan feature.

    How do I develop the functionality usually precedes for windows.

    It is something specific to the program. The notebook is not programmed in this way.
