Joel D Canfield asked: >>I'm experimenting with wscript.shell for some automation. This code >>returns no errors, but it doesn't do anything, either >>Anyway, does the code look right? ================================= <% Dim wshell, intReturn set wshell = server.createobject("wscript.shell") intReturn = wshell.run("%comspec% /k cd\ & dir *.*", 1, False) Response.Write( intReturn ) set wshell = nothing %> <html> <head> <title>Testing WScript.Shell Object</title> </head> <body> </body> </html> ================================= Hi Joel, A few ideas: (1) Try moving the Response.Write inside the body tag. <p> <% Response.Write(junk) %> </p> (2) I've never tried it that way ... do you have to set up an object first? (Kinda like writing the 'dir' command to a record set ... and then looping through the rs?) (3) I'm guessing this is a test case and what you really want to do is a lot trickier ... otherwise I'd suggest just grabbing the filesystemobject and looping through the files. HTH, RonL.
