ABCD Entity Folder Upload Images   Link   Email

I'm having to step away and get help!  As you can tell, I'm only in the Expert Levels, and having a MIGRAINE trying to remember what I learned and I'm getting mixed up.  I've tried to concatenate the EntityIDFolder, meaning instead of making an EntityIDFolder say "10", it will make a folder named "10 - Customer Name". I've tried putting in EntityFolder = EntityFolder & "\" & EntityID & "-" & [FirstName] & " " & [LastName]. I also tried putting in double "" where I thought I might need them, but I get is 10 - [FirstName] or 10 - FirstName.

What is the EXACT code you're using?

Located in GlobalMod

    DataFolder = EntityDBFolder & "\Data"
    EntityFolder = DataFolder & "\Entity"
  * EntityIDFolder = EntityFolder & "\" & EntityID & "-" ""[FirstName]"" & " " & ""[LastName]""""
    DocumentFolder = EntityIDFolder & "\Documents"

I'm probably forgetting a " or wrong all together.

I already fixed the missing "&" before [FirstName]. I've changed it so much trying to get it to work :)

I edited it down for you. Don't need ALL of that.

You're literally putting "[FirstName]" in your string. That's going to be part of the path/filename.

Brush up on your Concatenation and the Double Double Quotes problem.

Where are you getting FirstName and LastName from? They're not part of Global Mod. This isn't a form you can pull fields up from. You'll have to DLOOKUP them.

This is all stuff covered in my Developer lessons. Remember, the ABCD is NOT a teaching database. I only provide videos so you can see how it's constructed. I can't provide tech support on all of this.

Didn't mean to drop all of that on you at once. I know it's a lot. I know you're here to learn, but I've got other lessons that cover all of this. Start out by using DLOOKUP to get the FirstName and LastName. Then you can add them to the string.
