Hi,

I have an exe which creates excel reports based on the data it recieves from a sequential input file. Is there a way to trigger the exe once a new input file is recieved in the folder named InputFile using VB.net code?

Input file and the exe are placed in the same folder named "Report".

Based on what you say, you need to keep track of files in the folder at regular interval (probably via a windows service). Once a new file is found, you can run the corresponding exe using Process.Start.

Please try out, and post specific issue if you face any.
