Rename a file in Sage X3 version 7

By | July 30, 2015

Sage X3 version 7 has a new function to rename a file. With this simple function, we can rename a file.

renameFile: This function can be used to rename the file. This function returns a status 0 on success or a negative code.

New Stuff: How to do Location change of specific document through code…?

Syntax: RETURN_STATUS=renameFile(PATH,PATH1)

Parameter Details:

  • PATH: The path where a file is located
  • PATH1: The path with new file name
  • RETURN_STATUS: Its status of a file.

Points to be noted here is,

  • This function superseeds System “ren”-PATH-PATH1on Windows and System “mv”–PATH-PATH1on Unix. It is faster because it does not fork a process.
Return value Status
0 Operation succeeded
-20 File does not exist
-27 Access denied

Kindly refer to the below snippet of code for better understanding the renameFile function:


Hope this Helps!
