MACRO/BATCH Request:



  • i got a folder named COMPRESS
    i got *.xls and *.doc files in there
    how can i make just compress xls and doc extensions in their separated file names with One click to a folder?
    do i have to make subfolders for this operation to batchzip?

    file name samples:
    dailybackup09062009.xls
    dailybackup09062009.doc
    dailybackup09072009.xls
    dailybackup09072009.doc

    i want this at the end of compressing: (xls and doc files in it)

    dailybackup09062009.zip
    dailybackup09072009.zip

    how can i compress these files with xls & docs in their separated filenames
    please help



  • Sorry, I don’t understand what you mean by “One click to a folder” as PACL is a command line utility ?

    dailybackup09072009.xls

    dailybackup09062009.zip

    For this there are two options (I think)
    a) use the option “sep” will give you
    dailybackup09062009.xls.zip
    dailybackup09062009.doc.zip
    dailybackup09072009.xls.zip
    dailybackup09072009.doc.zip

    b) If your files are named as stated then you could create a DOS batch file/command something like

    For %%I in *.doc do
    pacomp -a %%~nI.zip %%~nI.doc %%~nI.xls

    This results in dailybackup09072009.zip
    containing dailybackup09072009.doc and dailybackup09072009.xls

    Check the actual syntax for your version of Windows with “HELP FOR”



  • i mean, i right-click to a folder files in it then voila.

    how can i use pacomp ? through the PowerArch GUI?

    i want program to automaticly select *.xls and *.doc and archive them separated by their unique file names.

    dailybackup09062009.zip files to their own
    dailybackup09072009.zip files to their own archives (xls and doc extensions) in it.

    how can i ?
    i couldnt make it with Winrar 😞

    I think this is in the wrong forum, you seem to be asking about PowerArchiver and not PACL.

    If you have a folder named “Compress” containing files with both doc and xls extensions (and no other files), then your options from PA (or explorer shell) are

    a) create a single archive (compress.zip) containing all files
    b) create seperate archive for each file in the folder using the “batch” option

    Creating seperate archives based on matching filenames (but different extensions) is not possible.

    If I understand your requirement you will have to create a Backup Script using PowerArchiver - but don’t create a new doc and xls each day, just update them and then run the script daily and backup to an archive named using the date.



  • thanks TBGBe for your concern
