    Maybe is because I haven't been using b4ppc for the past 2 weeks or so but, how do I reference a string variable in this case?

    for x = 1 to 20
    if file exist(???)=false then message the user......
    Next x

    How do I reference the file & x in this case?

    I've tryed If fileexist(file & x) but it doesn't compute....

    OK I've got it to work..using an array, as I problably should have done to start of..But at the end of the for next loop i keep getting a " out of boudaries" error...

    Here's the entire code...

    Sub Globals
    dim file(6)
    End Sub

    Sub App_Start
    End Sub

    Sub CheckFiles
    File(0)="Pairs v2.ini"
    For x = 0 to arraylen(File())
    If FileExist(File(x))= true Then
    Msgbox(file(x) & " is missing")
    end if
    Next x 
    End sub


    I found my error...forgot to ad the "-1" in the "for x = 0 to arraylen(file())" line...

    As i said, This could and was a "stupid" question....:sign0013::sign0137:

    BTW: I plan to use these subs to check the integrety of my app, so that if some file is missing, the app will not run at all...Not a piracy protection but more of a "error free" thing...I also plan to generate a log if the app does not start to list the missing file... this way will be easyer to debug.

    Hi Cableguy,

    the length of the file array is 6 because there are 6 entries.
    To access all of them your loop should go form zero to 5

    For x = 0 to arraylen(File()) - 1


    Sorry but I just missed your own correction...

    Sorry mate but I wasn't around earlier other wise I would have said that you probably needed to enclose the word file with quotation marks.

    If fileexist("file" & x)

    But I see that you and Specci48 have sorted it now ;)
