I have some code to increment a number in a text field by 1
but when i try and have say
in the txt originally and i +1 the number doesn’t go
002 but 101
the code is:
set DVDNumber to read file "Shared G4 HD:Users:karrenmay:Desktop:from CD/DVD - uploaded:DVD's:DVDIncrementNumber.txt" set nxtDVD to DVDNumber set nxtDVD to ((DVDNumber) + 1) ------ my incrementFile("" & nxtDVD & "", "Shared G4 HD:Users:karrenmay:Desktop:from CD/DVD - uploaded:DVD's:DVDIncrementNumber.txt", true) on incrementFile(thisdata, targetfile, appenddata) try set the targetfile to the targetfile as text set the opentargetfile to ¬ open for access file targetfile with write permission if appenddata is false then ¬ set eof of the opentargetfile to 0 write thisdata to the opentargetfile --starting at eof close access the opentargetfile return true on error try close access file targetfile end try return false end try end incrementFile
I cant seem to bedugg it, have tried a fair few things.
