    file object won't copy? or create new directory?

    I have an 2 applications, one that will create new directories easily, and the other won't copy or create anything. Both are using the file object. is there some setting that I need to turn on to allow creation/copying of files/directories?

    You do need to make sure you cleared an error if you had one with the file object. It will sit there and not do anything unless you clear it. (clear last error)

    Without seeing your MFA we really can't really guess what your doing wrong -- If one works and one doesn't whats different?

    Also try using the file-folder extension, it is similar to the file object, but I find it more reliable at deleting files and folder and has better copying features.

    The file object does not create folders automatically if they don't exist. You have to manually create them one directory at a time before doing any file work.

    Also, it depends which folders/files you're manipulating... try running as Administrator?

    Clearing the last error made it work great! Thanks! it was probably because each time the program ran, it first tried to create a folder that already existed, I didn't think that would cause a problem.

    There is a condition 'directory exists?'
