Re: Copy a folder and its contents to another location
Can anyone help an new user!
Basically I need to get Coldfusion to copy a folder called "project" and its
contents these include folders and excel files from my C: drive to another
folder called "jobs" located on my C: drive. I then need to rename the
"project" folder using data from a sql database.
I've tried using "cffile" copy which works if I want to copy a file such as an
excel file but it wont work when I try to copy a folder and its contents.
Should I be using "cffile" or something else?
Many thanks for your help!
ColdFusion does not have a 'copy folder' function. This kind of batch
file system processing is not really its purpose.
But you should be able to use if - if you so choose. You will need to
use a combination of <cfdiretory...> and <cffile...> tags with loops.
You will have to read the directory, loop over the results moving each
file and then process the directory again for a name change.
