I want to move files containing a specific keyword to a specific folder

Problem:

I want to move files containing a specific keyword to a specific folder

Solution:

Discussion:

To start with we need to define 3 things:

1. They keyword we are searching for,

2. The folder whose files we shall be looking into

3. The folder to which the files should be moved to in the event the keyword is found within.

It is very important that we understand that the “Read Text from File” action, can only be used to read the contents of files that can be successfully read within notepad.

 

So we use a “Display Input Dialog” action to allow the user define the keyword, we use a “Display Select Folder” dialog to select the folder we shall be looking within for files that contain the keyword we are looking for, and a second “Display Select Folder” dialog to select the folder to which we shall be moving our files.

How do I run my Jobs on other machines?

Problem:

How do I run my Jobs on other machines?

Solution:

If the other machine that you want to run WinAutomation on has the software installed, you can simply export the job and import it on the other machine. If this other machine does not have WinAutomation installed, you can simply create an executable file that will run on any machine, by compiling the Job.

To compile a Job, you simply select the job, and click on the “Generate EXE” button found in the WinAutomation Console. A window will appear asking you to further configure your Job before it is compiled.
