Hi Ernest, many thanks for the pointers. I added the delete statements as this macro is just the beginning of a much larger one and my needs dicate the files are not appended. The output file is just a temporary file for the macro to run a few more checks on. The "real" version will allow the user t...

Hi Bob, " Run Program>command.com " , that's pretty clever! In fact, I think it's even better than the solution I came up with. I found I could use a macro to write a batch file which then searched my text file and wrote the output to another file. The batch file took only a second or so to search a...

spotting IP addresses and dates in textfiles?

Does anyone have any pointers for an easy way of finding an IP address or a date in a textfile? The date could be in almost any format.

Thanks guys. Those "'s work perfectly. I amended the search line to : let>filename=type "c:\my documents\testfile.txt" | find "test" /i > "c:\my documents\testfile2.txt" and now it allows me to search a file if there's a space in the path. :D Then I added : DeleteFile>c:\testfile.bat ... at the end,...

One question - how do I get around the space problem in a path when using a .bat file? for instance, "c:\testfile.txt" is fine, but "c:\my document\testfile.txt" won't work. I know there's probably a very simple answer.

Searching huge text file - solution!

Wohooo! I just figured out how to search large text files quickly. i just tested this script and it completed a search on a 176MB text file in only a second or so. _____________________________ let>filename=type c:\testfile.txt | find "searchtext" /i > c:\testfile2.txt WriteLn>c:\testfile.bat,result...

I think it's maybe a matter of getting used to how the new one behaves. Sometimes it seems to want to live on my taskbar as well as the systray, in which case I close the entire thing and relaunch it, other times it's happy to just be in the systray.

"Input" opens entire program? 7.1 pro.

It seems probably 2 times out of 5, the "input" command opens the entire macro scheduler program just beneath the input window. I haven't worked out why it does this some times and not others, but if I do I'll let you know. It's as if I double clicked on the systray icon.

Just a quick note to thank everyone for their help in this matter. As you can probably tell, I'm new to this particular aspect, and your pointers have really helped. :D

Hi Tim, Thanks for taking the time to reply. I hope my "clunky" comment didn't come across as a complaint, or offensive to anyone, it certainly wasn't meant to be that. I wouldn't be without Macro Scheduler for anything in the world! I have a couple of jobs I need to perform every day, and each one ...

"clunky" cuz I'll be sending soneone the script and then having to give them instructions to autorun with task scheduler rather than having something nice and "all in one".

Aaah! Maybe that's what I was thinking of. I wonder how that would work in an executable? That begs the question.... If an exe macro is set to run after, say, 10 minutes, of no mouse activity, i presume we run the exe, it will monitor in the background, and when the mouse isn't moved for 10 mins it ...
