How can I convert bytes to KB by ChrisRChamberlain
Posted: 21 Jan 03 (Edited 25 Jan 03)

If you need to express the size of a file in KB or MB as opposed to bytes, try the following :-

lnNo = ADIR(laFile,[C:\myApp\New App.exe])
IF lnNo = 1 && File exists
    lcSize = Bytes2KB(laFile[2])
ENDI

? lcSize

* ***************************
*  Function: Bytes2KB
*    Syntax: Bytes2KB(nValue)
* ***************************
FUNCTION Bytes2KB
LPARAMETERS nValue

lnKB = (nValue/1.024) / 1000

IF lnKB > 999.99
    RETURN TRANSFORM(CEILING(lnKB/1.024/1000),[999,999])+[ MB]
ELSE
    RETURN TRANSFORM(CEILING(nValue/1.024/1000),[999,999])+[ KB]
ENDI

Have fun
