Trying to output an XML value into the filename

Postby DM_Cal » Sat Dec 15, 2007 12:25 am

I'm trying to get a filter that checks XML files for a specific element value(<CountryofFinalDestinationCode>) then outputs the filename with that element value. For example if file is test1.txt and value is US it appears as test1_US.txt, if file is test2.txt value is AU it outputs test2_AU.txt. I also want the original file deleted so only the newly named one exists.

I created this filter but it (a) doesnt seem to work and (b) claims it cant delete the files because it seems to be trying to access them again
