hope you can help.
Using a batch file, I have recently been asked to compare two file dates in a particular folder. Lets say the files names are F1.txt and mail.log.
If mail.log date is prior to F1.txt date then I want the batch file command to run another bat file, wait 20 seconds and then compare two other files within another folder...
The logics is like this:
IF mail.log date < F1.txt date in C:\TEST1 then run Run.bat ELSE
Wait 20 seconds
IF mail.log date < F2.txt date in C:\TEST2 then run Run.bat ELSE
Wait 20 seconds....
There are about 10 of these folders.
-I also do not want to run the Run.bat if the file dates in that folder are the -same, only if the mail.log file less than the F. files
-I also want to remove the time portion of the date
I have looked at some code like this:
FOR /F %%i IN ('DIR /B /O:D %FILE1% %FILE2%') DO SET NEWEST=%%i
but I cannot fit what I have together
Please can someone help
