I've written an app that saves the updated info into a network file folder based on the property number (I'm in the hotel industry). Currently I have a text file with the individual folder names that I've hand written so the app knows where to store the data. However that's proven to be inefficient as properties are being added requently and, for some unknown reason, the folder names seem to change (probably because of someone's personal reason). I need to "fix" this. My thoughts are to:
1) write some code that will read the name of each folder in that network file path and store those names on my (now handwritten) text file
2) re-write the code in the app to use a wildcard to find where to store the data on its own. To clarify: all of our property folders begin with it's property number (i.e. "208" or "1203", etc.).
With either of these, I'm not sure if that can be done much less how to do it. If it's possible, I'd prefer to consider option 2.
If it helps, the property folders read as "1504 - FPbs Meriden" or "3363 - Aloft Charlotte Ballantyne". Is there a way that I use code to instruct the app to save the data in the folder just using "1504"?
In advance, thanks for your help.
