By | November 27, 2015

In our previous blog “List the files from the directory” we have showed you how to find List the files from the directory. In this blog we are describing how to find only files name from directory or path.

Sage X3 has a special function filinfo which is used to find all the properties of a “physical” file given in the argument.

Syntax:  filinfo ( path_fil, arg_ent )
1. path_fil: Char type expression for the file path to be tested.
2. arg_ent: Integer expression specifying the property to be found.

Kindly refer to the below snippet of code for better understanding.


Example: filinfo(DIR+”\”+FILELIST(I),7)>0
Here we have used “7” as arg_ent (Second parameter) of filinfo function which gives size of file in octets.

1: Represent Files
0: Represent Folder
-1: Represent File which is non existing.
