I've got the following problem:
I've a PC that gets Time Stamped files from UPS that I need to
Copy to a new location, renaming to a KNOWN name, and then delete
the original file(s) once it has been processed [there COULD be
multiple files to process at one time, through normally there would
only be one]
I know the following about the file(s): that there are at a
certain path [ex. HD:Folder1:Folder2:Filename]
: that they need to be at another path under a constant
'name' [ ex. the file 'Filename' above needs to be moved to
HD2:Folder: and renamed 'UPSImport'.
Is there a way to do this via Applescript, in a way that I could
do multiple files?
Almost certainly -- and Automator might be able to do it too -- but
you left out the critical last bit: if there are multiple files to
move, how should they be named in the destination? They can't all be
named "UPSImport"; the file system doesn't allow that.
