my current code is as follows:
Private Sub file_search_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles file_search.Click Dim search_file As String = "xxxxxxxxx/yyyyyyy/vvvvvvv/*/*/*.sig" If System.IO.File.Exists(search_file) = False Then For Each missing_file In search_file txt_PS_Progress.Text += vbCrLf + missing_file Next End If End Sub
in the search_file as string i had to block out the path with xxx yyy vvv .
the * are muliple folders in the above directories that must be searched for the missing .sig file
all i want to return is the folder name from the search that is missing the file with the .sig
thanks in advance
