G'day, I would like to run a batch file that installs my s/sheet and at the same time, install a small text file that contains only a date.
Using VB, I would like VB to check that the text file exists, then check the text file for the date, then compare that date with todays date. if the date in the text file has expired I'd like the s/sheet to not open or to show a message box.
Sounds like it might work...Any help please?
regards,
