script editing - base64 for files in folder

script editing - base64 for files in folder

script editing - base64 for files in folder

Hi, the script only converts one file. Can you help me edit it for folder? Convert all files in the source folder to target folder (same file name as in the source folder). Thank you for your help.


inputFile = "D:\Folder\files_row_1_dmEncodedContent.blob"
outputFile = "D:\Folder2\files_row_1_dmEncodedContent.blob"

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.Filesystemobject")
Set input=fso.OpenTextFile(inputFile,1)
contents = input.ReadAll()

Set oXML = CreateObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument")
Set oNode = oXML.CreateElement("base64")
oNode.dataType = "bin.base64"
oNode.text = contents

Set BinaryStream = CreateObject("ADODB.Stream")
BinaryStream.Type = 1 'adTypeBinary
BinaryStream.Write oNode.nodeTypedValue
BinaryStream.SaveToFile outputFile

RE: script editing - base64 for files in folder

Here is an working example how to process all files in a folder.
Modify and try the example, so it prints all file paths in your folders. Then relocate your code in the subroutine ConvertFile and it should do the work.



inputFolder = "c:\folder"
outputFolder = "c:\folder2"

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
countFiles = 0
for each file in fso.GetFolder(inputFolder).Files 
  inputFile = fso.BuildPath(inputFolder, file.Name)
  outputFile = fso.BuildPath(outputFolder, file.Name)
  call ConvertFile(inputFile, outputFile)
  countFiles = countFiles + 1
wscript.echo "Done. " & countFiles & " files converted."  

sub ConvertFile(inputFile, outputFile)
  wscript.echo "Converting """ & inputFile & """" & VbCrLF & _
               "        to """ & outputFile & """"
end sub
