The file names all have the same pattern for example
Employee record for J Smith (001) for week 20.pdf
Employee record for B Brown (012) for week 20.pdf
Employee record for C Church (027) for week 20.pdf
With a new file being created for each week
There is a directory D:\Employee Records where these files are initially saved.
Within this directory there would be a sub directory for each employee which would be named in accordance with the naming convention used for the initial pdf file.
There are two separate actions that need to be undertaken for each file:
1. A copy of the file needs to be made and saved in another directory, say D:\Employee Reports with the filename reduced to the employee's name, i.e.
J Smith (001).pdf
B Brown (012).pdf
C Church (027).pdf
2. All of the files in C:\Employee Records then need to be moved into the subdirectory for the individual employee, i.e.
From C:\Employee Records\Employee record for J Smith (001) for week 20.pdf
To C:\Employee Records\J Smith\Employee record for J Smith (001) for week 20.pdf
The number after the employee's name is essentially a unique employee number.
I hope this clarifies what I am trying to achieve
