Thats what I had to do in the end.
Dalek Dave at 15-Aug-13 17:10pm View
   
What can I say?
What a great answer and so many things to poke around at over the weekend.
I will see how I get on, and if I run into any serious trouble I will contact you for some directions.
 
Thanks very much.

Thanks Mehdi.

Sergey, sorry.
VB.Net would be best, or at least some script like php.
What I need is to take images copied manually from the web and stored in a local folder.
I then need to upload the whole folder to a webspace attached to a webstore.
When I upload the products using a CSV file I want to include the path to the folder.
This seems easy: I have named each of the images after the product code of the item, so I can have a set path and just concatenate in the name of the image.
Or so I thought!
The store uses several instances of the same image in different sizes.
When you upload an image manually it does all this for you, but with 30,000 products this would take months to manually input.
So I need a way for "FOR EACH image IN folder, ..." and it needs to have 6 versions, each with a suffix appended to a common name, and each of them to be set to different sizes.
Well beyond the capabilities of a mere accountant with limited programming skills.

Thanks for the advice!

I countered the downvote as you are perfectly right Carlo.
Dalek Dave at 27-Mar-12 7:00am View
   
Yes I agree.
 
I just couldn't see what the OP wanted at first, his question was not as clear as it could have been.
Dalek Dave at 27-Mar-12 6:38am View
   
So MINIMUM of 2 lower case, MINIMUM of 2 Numbers?
Dalek Dave at 27-Mar-12 6:27am View
   
Please explain how that works?
You need Exactly 1 number, ok easy.
You need Exactly 2 lowercase, again, simple.
You state No Uppercase at all, no problem
You require Zero special character, child's play.
 
You want it between 8 and 16 characters - er... what the hell are you putting in there?
You cannot have zero upper case, 1 number and 2 lower case with no special characters.
 
Perhaps you are not asking your question clearly enough.
Dalek Dave at 27-Mar-12 6:21am View
   
If you read what I say you will see what to do.
 
Put the first bit of code in your header section, the second in body, (or in the form etc), it is really rather easy to do.
Dalek Dave at 27-Mar-12 6:20am View
   
You didn't give a lot of information, or any code.
How the hell are we to know what you want exactly?
I am not psychic.
 
And what do you mean about the "Address for this Question"?
Please explain.
 
I am trying to help, but you are making it hard.
Dalek Dave at 26-Mar-12 4:55am View
   
We are about to knock up three units in The Drive, Rickmansworth.
 
Proably going to be 6 or seven bedrooms, all on suite.
They will have triple garage and a small cinema, one with a stable.
Probably going to sell for £1.5M or thereabouts.
 
Are you still interested?
Dalek Dave at 25-Mar-12 13:51pm View
   
Yes, checked that out.
Dalek Dave at 20-Mar-12 14:42pm View
   
Thanks Mark, good input, I shall have a poke around.
 
I also had an idea that the pointer isn't set to the httpdocs directory, so it is lookng for the default file in the top level of the tree.
Dalek Dave at 20-Mar-12 14:41pm View
   
Thanks, nice to have a perfectly reasonable question downvoted without explanation.
Dalek Dave at 23-Feb-12 16:32pm View
   
It was working before my problems, but after I re-windowed it wasn't working.
I checked all the paths, they were good.
I checked the FTP call in the batch file and that seemed good.
Stumped!
 
Then all of a sudden it occured to me that the problem was that the users directory was mark read only.
Why?
It certainly shouldn't be.
Oh well, I unclicked and bingo, it worked perfectly well again.
 
Bloody Microsoft.

I was showing that one page could be viewed, but not another.
Dalek Dave at 23-Feb-12 15:54pm View
   
Logic has nothing to do with it.
I have uploaded, and checked it is there.
Dalek Dave at 23-Feb-12 15:51pm View
   
I had thought that.
 
But it definitely does, I open filezilla and there it is!
Dalek Dave at 4-Feb-12 14:32pm View
   
Thanks, that seems to have done it for me!
 
I owe you, two answers to my dim-witted questions :)
Dalek Dave at 4-Feb-12 13:36pm View
   
As for the old fashioned way, you have to remember I am an accountant, so a lot of the "old fashioned ways" are the "new fangled ways" :)
Dalek Dave at 4-Feb-12 13:36pm View
   
Answer what way?
 
I just used the "I have solved this myself" button.
I didn't post as an "Answer".
Dalek Dave at 4-Feb-12 13:00pm View
   
Thanks, it seems that you cannot put a meta tag in an iframe and the way to do it is as I have edited about, using setTimeout as you seuggested.
Dalek Dave at 4-Feb-12 12:47pm View
   
OK tried it and it says that Meta cannot be nested in an iframe.
Dalek Dave at 4-Feb-12 12:40pm View
   
I refuse to accept that it is that simple!
 
Is that it?

This copies the worksheet, you just need to save the second copy.
Your question was somewhat ambiguous, I don't feel I deserved the downvote but hey ho if that is how you feel so be it.

If they do not provide enough information then it means the answer is not as complete as it could be, but some people are fairly new and are unaware of the complexities.
It took me time to learn how to ask the questions in such a way as to elicit the best answer from the intelligentsia.
Dalek Dave at 26-Jan-12 4:51am View
   
Do you mean Work Through a menu on a timer, or Switch Menus altogether?
 
More clarity and precision in the question leads to an increasingly perspicacious answer.
