    Is there away to find a specific folder?
    For example I have about 1,000 folders, I need to run a macro that tells Ultraedit "Find this folder" once in that folder open "This file" and save.
    The challenge I'm having is calling out a specific folder from a csv. I can copy the file name via a macro but then I can't figure out how to paste it into the find with a macro. Make sense?

      You can use this macro:

      Code: Select all

      UltraEditReOn
      FindInFiles Recursive "C:\" "*.csv" ""
      ASCIIToUnicode
      Top
      Find RegExp "%*\Specific Folder\Specific File.csv$"
      IfFound
      Clipboard 9
      Copy
      CloseFile NoSave
      Open "^c"
      ClearClipboard
      Clipboard 0
      Else
      CloseFile NoSave
      EndIf
      It runs a Find in Files with an empty search string recursively on entire drive C: to get a list of all *.csv files on this drive written to results window.

      Next the caret is moved to top of the results file containing now a list of CSV files with complete path.

      An UltraEdit regular expression is used to find the specific file in the specific folder and selecting the complete file name (entire line).

      The found file name with path is copied to user clipboard 9 before closing the results file of Find in Files and opening next the file with name in user clipboard 9.

      Last user clipboard 9 is cleared and Windows clipboard is activated again.
