remove space from File name

remove space from File name

remove space from File name

I have a vb script and its failing because of a space in file name(abc xy.xlsx). I tried opeion ch(43) and """" options but not working.
Can somebody help me with this ?

RE: remove space from File name

Failing/not working how?

RE: remove space from File name

You can add double quote to the filename with this function :

CODE --> vbscript

FileNameWithSpace = "abc xy.xlsx"
wscript.echo DblQuote(FileNameWithSpace)
Function DblQuote(Str)
    DblQuote = Chr(34) & Str & Chr(34)
End Function

RE: remove space from File name

never dreamed of a DblQuote Function, like it, it would have saved me years of typing Chr(34)'s winky smile
