The quick version - I want to move files within a folder based on the file's name. No PDM - we use windows explorer environment. Without a macro I would be moving the files one by one with SW Explorer. It's a few hundred files, which is doable but I also want to learn more about API and I think this would be good education. Alternatively is this a job for Task Scheduler?
The details - I have assemblies & parts that are noise in that I want to throw in existing sub folders without breaking links. We have folders are named by the "program" number as the first 3 characters of the folder name. Any file within a folder that doesn't share those same first three characters I want to put in an existing sub folder. There are a few program folders I want to apply this macro to. I could run this macro on each program folder, or if there is a cool code I could apply to the folder level above to grab each program's folder in the same operation.
