|Date Updated - 07/22/2007|
User question: I need to backup (copy) a file, if it exists. I need to send a command successful confirmation email when the backup is completed successfully and a failure notification when the backup fails. (user is using a Windows 2000 system)
1) Run a copy command via a WinCommand task, using the windows NT
command shell (cmd.exe). This way the system exit code is returned correctly to Automize when the copy fails.
In a WinCommand task:
For the commandline use: cmd.exe /c copy DHR.html DHRCopy.html
For the Working directory use: c:\temp
If the file exists and copy is successful, the WinCommand task will return with exit code = 0. If file does not exist, exit code = 1.
2) Create a Chain task with 3 steps
