Hi :)
I have a txt containing a list of document names (docx) For example:


I would need a script that searches the list of names inside a folder (and subfolders) and creates a txt containing the file path
For example:

C:\Doc\Nuova cartella\2023\newdoc2023.docx
C:\Doc\Nuova cartella\2020\base\doc\document_34.docx

Many thanks :)

P.S. I apologize for posting this (I assume) in the wrong section

Code: Select all

dir newdoc2023.docx /s /b >result.txt
will do?

If you just have a small number of files, you can do what Simon_Weel suggests and hard code the filenames:

dir newdoc2023.docx /s /b >result.txt
dir document_34.docx /s /b >>result.txt

If you have a lot of files then you will want to automate reading the filenames in a loop:

Code: Select all

@echo off
for /f %%G in ('type files.txt') do call :sub "%%G"

dir %1 /s /b >>result.txt
Thats assuming the current directory is the top of the tree to be searched.
