Good afternoon Gentlebeings:
Hope you can help.
Why doesn't this return stdoutput and stderr to the log?
Code:

SHELL "%COMSPEC% /C XCOPY C:\TEST\O\*.* C:\TEST\A\*.* /y /r /v /f /e >>C:\logs\test.log 2>>C:\logs\test.log"


Thanks
Stanley

They error I get is
"The process cannot access the file because it is being used by anther process"
I didn't find anything in the link about redirecting output.
Appreciate the effort though

the error is pretty clear.
kinda like, your log file is opened for explicit writing so it can't be written to.

Laziness takes its toll. I did not read all of the links. Found it in the second one.
Code:
  
SHELL "%COMSPEC% /C XCOPY C:\TEST\O\*.* C:\TEST\A\*.* /y /r /v /f /e >>C:\logs\test.log 2>&1"



This did what I wanted. Thanks DOC. Give that man a star.

hmmm ... the rating system has to be understand diferently.

->Rate a user ONE star (*) only if you are really pissed off by his reply

->Forget all ratings in between as they really obfuscate the overall reflection of the rating situation of this User

->Rate 5 stars (*****) if you are satisfied with the answer(s); Like 'Wow, this guy really saved me half a day of work or even better my job'

hth

three stars for robvandewoude.com




and I thought you gleaned the info from my FAQ.

Not quite everything you wanted to know about RUN and SHELL

Guess I am not worthy of your vote then.

BTW, somone gave me 1 lousy star, knocking down the 5 I had to the current 4. If only I knew who...

I apologize again, but back to the original issue.
Is there a way to return any errors to the Kix script?
Code:
  
$ret = SHELL "%COMSPEC% /C XCOPY C:\test\a\$filename C:\test\o\*.* /y /e /f /v /r >>C:\_test\test.log 2>&1"



kicks up an "ERROR: Error in expression.!"

Are you talking about the error text or ERRORLEVEL? ERRORLEVEL is returned as @Error. There are various Pipe() UDFs that can return SHELLed output back to KiX.

SHELL doesn't return a value. Check @ERROR to find the return code from programs run through SHELL (i'm trying for a five-star rating too) :0)

Actually I am trying to get a return from any shell command. I did realize that @ERROR returns correctly, but what i am trying for is this.
I am transferring files via FTP and when I run the SHELL to run the FTP session I was hoping to be able to get the results into the KIX script so I can update an inhouse job monitoring system as to whether the files were actually FTP'd or not.
Shawn:
I have been monitoring this board for a while now , but just joined recently and from your past responses to other peoples questions I would say you deserve five stars.
